A slight change of use

31 Aug

These Victorian offices on Union Street/Albion Street used to be the School Board’s Offices but now thanks to the passage of time, progress and what have you this is now a supermarket, in fact it’s a Chinese supermarket, Chong Wah, selling all sorts of goodies. It’s comes as no surprise to know that back in the day (1898) the Victorians weren’t averse to wasting some of the education budget on fancy decoration such as this elaborate window frame. It’s a Grade 2 listed property as you might expect.

    A beautiful building, but an odd current use.
