Description

The 1949 article ‘Tasmania’s Historic Towers’ by M.S.R. Sharland appeared in the Hobart, Tasmania, based newspaper The Mercury. The article discusses a number of stand-alone towers in Tasmania, including two medieval-styled examples, the pigeon tower on Panshanger Estate and the water tower at Evandale. The author bemoans the functionalism of modern architecture and is glad that earlier builders created structures of beauty, even if they may seem to be a ‘folly’.
