Description

Image of Albany Bell Castle in the Perth suburb of Maylands. The castle was designed by architect Alexander Cameron for Mr Albany Bell and his company Albany Bell Ltd. Completed in 1919, the building was used as a cake and confectionary factory. It was designed as a model factory providing pleasant conditions for employees, and was inspired by the Cadbury factory in Bourneville, England. The red brick and stucco building features towers with parapets, and crenellation on much of the building. It was heritage listed in 1992 and converted into apartments.
