This deco building is part of what was originally the Warragul Shire Council Saleyards. With a rationalisation of Victoria's local government areas in the mid 1990s, Warragul Shire became part of Baw Baw Shire and at some point the sale yards become the Baw Baw Livestock Exchange Pty Ltd.
It's lovely that they didn't remove the old lettering when the ownership changed.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at email@example.com if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
