Description

A photograph of the new entrance to the Western Australian Museum – Perth, juxtaposed with the Jubilee Building that acts as one of the museum’s wings. The Jubilee Building was designed by Government architect George Temple-Poole and opened in 1897. It originally housed the Museum and Library. It was built in the Victorian Byzantine/Romanesque style with an 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.
