The George St Kilda, 1886

Original post 17 May 2020

The ornate corner wing of the #GeorgeHotelStKilda was added in 1886, designed by #HarryBGibbs, very #highvictorian, a delight to pass on the way to shops. Very interesting stylised capitals. When this wing was built, along with the rear dining room wing, The George became the largest hotel in Melbs outside the CBD, showing how StK was a kind of a resort suburb within the city.
