Fly on high..



Well who knew! In Fremantle this week to pick up my fabulous lampshade we pulled in to park on High Street, not our usual carpark, take a look at what greeted me on the street! Victoria Hall, built in 1896/7 as a parish hall, renamed in 1897 for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Saved from demolition in 1974 it is now home, since 1986 to the Fly by Night Musicians Club, a 'not for profit member based community arts organization'.. pretty cool venue oui! I love jazz and I like the look of QV Hall, a combination of the two may have to happen in the future :) TGIF, have a good one, take care and stay safe.. P.s. Those Victorian details below could do with a dusting :)

  2. A beautiful building. Glad they didn't tear it down, that would have been a very bad move.

  7. It's a wonderful example of late Victorian. Better that is looks a bit rough around the edges than having bad work done to it. Glimpses of more modern architecture next door, which could well be what is on the site if this had been demolished.
