Council Offices, Port Adelaide

Council Offices, Port AdelaideThe Council Offices in Port Adelaide dating from 1939 were designed by Adelaide architect, Christopher A Smith.

Note the rounded corner of the building and the horizontal bands above each bank of windows. A small balcony above the main entrance with metal railings also features similar banding and is offered a little shelter by a series of three eyebrows stacked on top of each other, underlining the city crest.
