It's quite a monumental, stately looking building!

It is a bit like Parliament House in Melbourne but without all the tram tracks and ugly overhead wires.

A very grand building. Think I'll jump on to ancestry.com to see if I can find an ancestor who owned so I can move in.

You know how I said I had taken some pics in Adelaide last year when I was there for the first time in 9 yrs? They're of this building :)) I was on KW St/Nth Tce....it's lovely wandering down North Tce, it's like a promenade on that Museum side...open and expansive, and all the old buildings. I also got a shot of Darryl Lea's bldg and others around there. But the PH pics were best; such detail in the pillars and ornamental finishings....I should post them but I don't know how they fit in with either of my sites!!

So much history in this building. The stories that even the storage rooms are probably able to tell. This is definitely one piece of Adelaide history that's going to be very well protected in all the years to come.
