Former Launceston Bank for Savings

The former Launceston Bank for Savings was built in 1938 by local born architect, Roy Smith who built several modernist commercial and private dwellings throughout Launceston and Tasmania. Since this photo has been taken the shop has been repainted a cream colour and the vacant block to the left of the photograph is now a new health clinic. The business has a conjoined house to the back in the same style. The window details, especially at the rear of the premises have many nice features.
