Details

Depicts Goldsborough Mort Building on the corner of William and Bourke Streets, Melbourne. The Goldsborough Mort Building was built in 1862 to designs by architect John Gill and was Richard Goldsborough's first warehouse in what became an extensive complex in this area of the city. The original design was a four storey bluestone building divided into offices and a wool warehouse. Internally cast iron columns and wrought iron beams support the timber floor joists which carried the weight of wool in storage. The top floor was added in 1882, possibly at the same time as an extension to the north end of the building on William Street. Ref : Heritage Council website. From 'Jubilee history of Victoria and Melbourne', / T.W.H. Leavitt editor. Small mark lower right corner.
