Description

One of two photographs of the Jubilee Building that now acts as a wing of the Western Australian Museum – Perth. The brick and stone building was designed by Government architect George Temple-Poole and opened in 1897, originally housing the WA Museum and Library. It was built in the Victorian Byzantine/Romanesque style with a semi-circular arched entrance and windows. What is now the outer wall of the lower level was originally a piazza, or cloister veranda, paved in mosaic tiles.
