Description

A photograph of the Government Geology building/former Library, now a wing of the Western Australian Museum – Perth. The building was completed in 1902 and was designed by Government architect John Grainger. It was built to blend in with the Jubilee Building built by Grainger’s predecessor George Temple-Poole. As can be seen in this photograph, the building originally housed the State Library and the Government Geologist. The former Library building was built in brick and stone, including stone left over from the Jubilee Building. It is in the Victorian Byzantine/Romanesque style with arched windows.
