Emirates House

Emirates House was completed in 1972 and was known for many years by it's address - 167 Eagle Street. In the early nineties it was refurbished as Telstra House and again more recently as Emirates House. In it's original state it was 313.33 feet tall above Eagle Street . The same architects later did AMP and Comalco Place.

Oh ma Lordee, lookee here

Anyway, here goes:

Cloudland - maybe posted twice before. I've literally kept this pic for years
