Lost Buildings

This is a fairly random collection of lost buildings, but it is still a somewhat shocking discovery to note that of the sixteen I've listed, no fewer than six of the sites are now STILL used merely for parking.

Cliff St Post Office, 1889-1967 - site has been a carpark behind the Sailors' Rest for many years, now used by NDU students. The PO was designed by J.J. Talbot Hobbs.

Ivanhoe, 8 Ord St, near corner of High St, 1889-1966 - now townhouses

Johnston Memorial Congregational Church, Adelaide St, 1877-1968 - now Johnson [sic] Court flats - they couldn't even get the name right!

Liebler Building facade, aka Reckitt & Colman Building facade, 21-29 - only the facade remains; there is a carpark behind it, where the rest of the building used to be* until it was demolished in 1967. * It's possible the facade always was a facade added to some ordinary cottages - I've forgotten where I read this.
