Facing the intersection of Spring and Bourke streets, the west facade of the building, with its sweeping steps, elegant lamps and grand colonnade, suggests solidity and strength.
However, appearances can be deceptive as the ambitious vision of 19th century architect Peter Kerr was never fully realised, leaving the building incomplete.
