Queens Hall at the State Library has some great old furniture, and lots of empty space.

Pleased to see the refurbished and reopened #QueensHall at the #StateLibraryVictoria has the original furniture! Which I now see are at least 3 different designs, but all nicely old, varnished and worn (with old graffiti). They used to be all in the middle, with book stacks on the sides- but there’s now far fewer shelves, and they’re lower, so the whole space now feels much larger, in fact it feels a bit empty ! (I now realise that the modem tables are in the middle so that they can be moved around when it’s leased out for functions). It’s also light and bright, with those polished floorboards instead of carpet. And I’m not sure about those #LEDlightstrips under the balconies, a bit too modern ?
