Centenary Hall & Loyal Orange Order Purple Star.

That’s not just any star, it’s the star of the #LoyalOrangeOrder, the Irish Protestant association. It’s in #CentenaryHall in Exhibition Street which has been the home of the Victorian #LiberalParty since they bought it in 1976 from the Protestants who built it in 1935, replacing an earlier hall. There’s a big auditorium on the first floor that could seat 450, still there, hence the grand stairs. It was designed by Philp & Bottoms who must’ve been Protestants, never heard of them. There’s also a #crownandseptre On the front, guess it’s a reference to Britain being a United Kingdom. Sold to @rolexaustralia last year, I suppose they’ll use the hall to display / sell their watches.
