  2. Timber framed weatherboard is familiar in Australia but mainly, I am guessing, for domestic architecture or small public sites. The square shapes, flat roof and large weatherboard walls are totally new to me. But very suitable for a port building.

  4. Now there is a symmetrical looking building if ever I saw one. I wonder what the architect would think about some of today's structures.
