I don't understand why that couldn't have been saved. Galleria is fun and all, but the old bank building is better.

Know what you mean, had it still been standing now, I'm sure they would have kept it as the podium for the Commonwealth Bank Building.
Then again, maybe not.

A shot below of it in the rain, so cool.



An example of how they could have utilized it can be seen in the way they developed the former John Danks & Son Pty. Ltd., later McEwan’s then Bunnings and now The Foundry apartments.


On Bourke Street, Melbourne, just a few doors up from the former State Savings Bank Building, John Danks & Son Pty. Ltd.,ready for the Royal Visit in 1954.

I can still remember the old State Bank of Victoria building.
I remember my older brother telling me they where going to build a building nearly as tall as Nauru House, i was excited by the news then, but now im not so pleased with the podium, they should've used the old building as the podium imo..

Here is two photos of Townsville, taken 113 years apart. The first is from 1897, the second I took this morning. Its amazing to see little shanties in what is now the middle of the CBD. The only building visible in both pics is the School of Arts (curved white roof at centre left), although it was partially rebuilt after being badly damaged in Cyclone Leonta (1903). On the other hand its a shame to see the CBD pretty much dead and with so much unrealised potential today.

Dunno Cul... there weren't any cars in the 1890's. I reckon it's more 1920's (cars, but no traffic lights, which were installed in the 1920's... I think).

Anyway, Great photo.

It's amazing just how much some of these old photos look like they could have been taken in a UK city.

Cul took the photo so he should know what year it was taken

great pic... although looking at it, and please don't get offended anyone, Garden Palace lacks the symmetry of the Royal Exhibition Building. Still an amazing structure considering how this things were constructed.
