Re-discovering treasure..



On this post last week some of you quite rightly admired the glimpse of the building here. This has to be one of the biggest and most successful restorations in the city. The Old Treasury Building built in 1877, occupied by the State Government for 120 years and then left abandoned for two decades.. imagine that, incroyable! You can see some interior pics taken before the restoration here. Now home to some of Perth's finest restaurants and boutique hotel, this old beauty is refreshed, restored and fabulous! If you have a few minutes scroll down and check out the short video here to have a closer look. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. taken very early just as people are arriving in the city..
