Alexandria, town hall

Alexandria Town Hall is located along Garden Street, in the inner city suburb of Alexandria. It was designed by Ferdinand Reuss Snr and built in 1881 in the Victorian architectural style. In 1928 the façade was redesigned by DT Morrow and Gordon in the Inter-War Free Classical architectural style. In those days many inner city suburbs had their own municipalities but these days it is used as a community centre.

  3. If it wasn't for the lettering I would've thought it was entrance to a High School.
