Lincoln Street Ventilation Stack, Highgate

Ventilation Stack, HighgateThis imposing art deco tower is in the Perth suburb of Highgate.

The Lincoln Street Ventilation Stack was built in 1935 as a sewer vent by the Metropolitian Water Supply, Sewerage and Drainage Department. It failed to adequately disperse the gasses and by 1941 was sealed and decommissioned.

Since then it has been used as a transmission tower.

It dominates the suburban streets and must be an amazing landmark to live next to.
