Murrumbidgee Irrigation Building, Griffith

Murrumbidgee Irrigation Building, GriffithThese offices in Griffith, NSW, were built for the Water Conservation & Irrigation Commission in the mid 1950s.

The foundation stone was unveiled on 14th December 1956 by the Honourable A G Enticknap, MLA, Minister for Transport and local member for Murrumbidgee. It is set in the brick wall to the left of the doors partly obscured by one of the supports of the canopy over the entrance leading to the conclusion that the porch, and possibly the glass bricks, were added after the original construction.

In the view below you can make out the unfortunate location of the foundation stone but also the lovely arrangement of three small square windows on the side of the tower and the simple flagpole.
