Port Town Hall's Art Deco period

Last week I wrote about the different faces presented to Bay St and Spring St by our Town Hall. David Thompson has written here about yet another era of our Town Hall - its Art Deco incarnation. The mayor and councillors' chairs and table in the Council Chamber are all that survive of that period, but David provides a fascintating glimpse into an elegant time in the Port Town Hall's history The 2012 Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society calendar, available from the Port Town Hall, features an almost tactile reproduction of one of the panels that were a feature of the auditorium.
