I was passing by the Supreme Court here in Launceston so took some photos with my phone, and wanting to find out what year it was built.
Built in 1870-1871 for the wealthy Scottish Colonist James Robertson who was against bringing convicts to Australia.
In 1893 the building was used as a private maternity hospital and in 1929 was acquired by the Tasmanian Government for use by the Launceston Supreme Court.
Note the Arch!
A boyfriend long ago, had to take me to the Police Station. My late dad was a Detective Sergeant at that time, so he was working evening duty. The Police Station was behind the building.
It was there underneath that Arch I had my first kiss :)
Amazing, same Arch today.
Apparently there is some stained glass somewhere. The building has certainly changed.
The left side of the building where the arch is.
Across the road.
Down the street opposite the Supreme Court.
