Obligatory shot of the #DomedReadingRoom attge @library_vic from the top- it’s actually very high up ! For a place that had to house thousands of books, that’s a lot of empty space ! But very glad it’s there. Designed by Norman Peebles of #BatesPeeblesAndSmart, #JosephReed’s firm as it was in 1913. At 35.5 metres it was the largest conc dome in the world ! except it wasn’t – the 69m wide #JahrHundertHalle in what was then German Breslau, was completed in May 1913, our was opened in Nov. Myth busted !
