Historic arcade, Brisbane Australia:
A heritage listed arcade with up market shops, built in 1924, that even has its own bomb shelter, in the basement, no longer used as such. This was the subject for my challenger’s choice photograph for this week’s challenge. To join in with your phone’s best photos, see below:
Since the deaths of owner, James Mayne in 1939, and Mary Mayne in 1940, Brisbane Arcade has been operated by a board of trustees acting on behalf of their estates, with operating proceeds benefiting the University of Queensland School of Medicine, (according to Wikipedia).
