Queen Victoria Building, George Street, Tuesday September 26th 2006.

The site on which the QVB stands was originally the first Sydney markets and was selected for the construction of a grand government building, intended to employ skilled craftsmen out of work during a severe recession. It was completed in 1898. The building steadily deteriorated and as recently as 1959 it was threatened with demolition. During the 1970s it was restored and is now home to a wide variety of mostly upmarket boutiques and brand-name shops.
