Launceston Art Deco Pumping Station
This pumping station in Launceston is a little gem featuring deco style detailing, that is most notable on the main facade (pictured). It was designed by Council Architect, C.L Clennett in 1940. I enjoy it because it rates as one of those hidden and small examples of modernist design that are equivalent to finding a little pot of gold!
