1926 Russell Street and Collins Street corner


Interesting photo of the Burke & Wills Chambers Building that was located on the south-west corner of Russell and Collins Street. All of the buildings in this photo were demolished within a few years to accommodate the new T&G Life Assurance building, the first stage of which was completed in 1929. The beautiful Anzac House building is to the right of the image.
