Australian Club, William Street

Repost 2017:

The #AustralianClub, the other great #mensclub after the Melbourne Club. Built in stages; the left in 1884 designed by #LloydTayler, then in 1890 they decided to double the size, designed by J Charlesworth, adding the almost central entry, portico, huge stair hall, and the right side, containing an enormous salon/dining room. Completed 1893 just as the Victorian economy crashed to a nadir. Has great #vermiculation, and an ‘area’ lighting the basement. Interiors various sources, very grand indeed, including a room with painted panels by famed flower artist #EllisRowan.
