Well, we have come to the end of our heritage trail around Goulburn - Australia's First Inland City. I hope you have enjoyed the series!
We are now on Montague Street - just down the road from the court house. This building - as you can see - Elmslea Chambers - is a stunning example of Art Deco.
This was one of the first buildings in Australia to use glazed ceramic building blocks – much cheaper than carved stone. Built in 1935, the building is very rich in ornamental detail. Above the entrance, in baked ceramic tiles, is a ram’s head set against a sunburst; and on either side you can see pairs of ibises in stylized leaves. Under the windows, you can also see the Art Deco sunbursts.
