    Maybe that's the whole city, like its in a "frikkin moonbase building" or something.

    It is in the desert.

    A bit late now, I know, but the rest of the photos are HERE.

    The Woodside building is where I'm currently working, on the 18th floor (24 stories total):



    QV1 is just across the street:




    I was looking for somewhere to post this without starting a new thread:

    Does this look a little familiar?



    More pics HERE.

    London Court will probably survive forever. How could anyone dare tear it down?

    Does downtown have a significant residential population? If so, what is it?

    Could it be? Did they use the original, (looks like they did some reinforcing cross-wise) or forge new ones?

    Merry, last was posted as quote from you, but I just wanted to partial quote the bottom pic so I don't know what happened. Not stealing your thunder. Promise!

    ^ No problem, mariab . My bus goes past that building every morning, and I finally got around to taking a few pics yesterday. I had to do a double take, the first time I saw it. I really like the rusty looking decoration.

    It's very faux, but quite quaint. For the tourists.

    At each end of the city in East Perth and West Perth, there has been quite an explosion of high-rise and townhouse construction. Not "affordable" .

    There's also a lot more residential in the city itself now, mostly high-rise, but also the occasional conversion.

    Don't know the stats.

    Well-detailed and not cartoony. 1920's ... or even earlier?

    Depression era, huh? That probably explains the high level of workmanship. Cheap labor.
