The impact that AMP and Comalco had on Brisbane at the time could easily be likened, if not moreso, to the impact Vision, Eagle St, 480 Queen, Empire will have on Brisbane in the future. A total transformation.

That crane in the background - must be the QPAC under construction across the river.
Interesting to note that Her Majesty's Theatre prominent in this pic moved to the QPAC. This building and some of the adjoining sites, including those occupied by Bayards and Vic Jensens, all clearly visible in the pic, were later levelled to became the Wintergarden/Hilton complex.
