Walter Liberty Vernon (NSWGA) Heavily remodelled 1923 Leslie Wilkinson

location

Science Road

date

1899

style

Wilkinsonesque Georgian/Inter-War Mediterranean. (facelift)

Originally teaching rooms with lecture theatre.
   
  Interesting building, unsuccessful as building, successful as a background building.
I like the mixture and struggle going on between the styles (the Mediterranean building against the Victorian tower).
