1877c Number 1 Collins Street, Melbourne


A significant photograph of Number 1 Collins Street, Melbourne, one of Australia's most prestigious locations, on the south-west corner with Spring Street. This building was completed in 1877 and captured on film by Charles Nettleton in the late 1870s. This building still exists, but sadly all of the other buildings are gone.

The building, known as Campbell House, was built in 1877 for William Campbell, a wealthy pastoralist. Designed by Leonard Terry who also designed the Melbourne Club building in 1858.
