The massive #bluestone #GoldsboroughMort #woolstore on the cnr of #bourkestreet and William survives surrounded by #officetowers. Built in stages, starting 1862 with the corner bit, extended 1882, and top floor added incl the cornice. All very #renaissancerevival in fact looks a little like the palazzo Medici. And till the mid 70s it was twice as big with another section on the right on Bourke St. #goldsboroughmort was I think the biggest wool broker in the biz, with stores all over Australia, some bigger than this. This was saved in the late 70s, beginning I think the first major industrial conversion, keeping all the cast iron and timber structure intact – though all you can see are the columns.
