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 semi-circular arched entrances and windows. This photograph shows a former entrance to the building, with a moulded doorway supported by columns with decorated capitals. The entrance is part of a tower with four turrets ending in pointed finials.
