This facade in #QueensParadeCliftonHill looks like some daggy 80s #PostmodernClassical, but it’s actually 1927! Appears to be an added front to an 1880s venue known as the Albert Hall. I havnt unravelled the history, but seems it was hall first, used for theatricals and meetings, with rooms used by the Oddfellows and the Freemasons too, the latter possibly getting complete ownership, or at least building this new front in 1927, when they also commemorated their lodge being 40 years old. No architect for either that I can find.
