Oglvie High School
Oglvie High School (1936) located in the suburbs of Hobart would have to be rated as one of S.W Blythes masterpieces. Its dominant and impressive Art Deco Facade coupled with the dramatic backdrop of Mt Wellington make this building sing. Oglive was just one of the many Moderne style schools that Blythe designed. Others he designed included schools in Campbell Town, Queenstown, Glendu and Strahan. To view more photographs of Art Deco and Modernist buildings in Tasmania click here
