Subject

Horizontal retort building, Launceston, Launceston Gasworks, Romanesque, semi-circular arch, Tas, Tasmania.

Description

The horizontal retort building is one of a number of derelict buildings on the former Launceston Gasworks site in the northern Tasmanian city of Launceston. The brick with sandstone edging building was completed in 1860. The building includes Romanesque features, in particular the semi-circular arched windows and doors, many of which have now been bricked up. As can be seen in photograph 3, some Romanesque windows were also included in later (20th century) brick and steel buildings on the site.
