Prudential, Bourke Street, 1960.

Original post 29 June 2020

Great shot from @heraldsunphoto_retro of the Prudential Building, cnr Bourke & Queen only just demolished late last year; you can see the other 3 corners of this intersection are vacant, ready for the mid rise office buildings all constructed in 1960-63, three of them, like this one, by #BatesSmartMcCutcheon, this being the most conservative, in sandstone. The other two, Elders/Sliegh, and South British Insurance are more or less intact.
