The Site of the Great Exhibition
Melbourne Exhibition Building - held in 1880
Below - A photo from 1900 - just 20 years on.

The venue for this ~ Grand Exhibition ~ is still in existence in Melbourne today
built in 1879 for this large event, being built in classic Victorian Architectural Style.
It is located in Carlton - and in walking distance from the inner City of Melbourne.
Due to its Age and Magnificent condition - it has a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Building list.

The Exhibition Building today is used at regular intervals for many exhibitions
including Art & Trade Shows and the Royal Agricultural Show.
The Home Show and Car Show have been a regular event within this building for many years.
The dome above, plus internal roof features are of special interest to visitors from all over the world,
and the Great Exhibition Hall is a rare sight to behold with architectural value second to none.
An aerial photo would be the only way to do justice to the enormity of this particular building.
The building has beneath an immense basement used for its own building services and also storage.

You're right! A lot of people from local and northeastern clubs were in to see it, and that's just what they did! Museums, too! Local historical society, same thing. Then, to add insult to injury, I had one fellow from a well known steam club go up one side of me and down the other when I mentioned we were recovering the engine, he was mad as hell. I had to hear how his club had enough money to get any engine they wanted, and if that one was worth getting they would have gotten it, how we were spoiling the chances of other groups getting engines because we didn't know what we were doing and we were going to give such groups a bad name when we failed. Needless to say, I've never joined. Unbelievable. The good part is that it turns out he is not representative of the attitudes in general in that group, and there are many fine fellows there doing good work too! But there's always gotta be one! - Jim Mackessy
