T&G Building - Hobart
The T&G Building - Hobart: In need of a little TLC
This is a rear perspective of the T&G Commercial complex in Hobart CBD. The T&G buildings were dotted all around towns and cities across Australia.

The building is in a good state, although it is at a stage of its life that it does need rennovations as the exterior fittings (such as the smashed clock facade), peeling paint and general wear and tear. A T&G Tower block at the other end of the country in Townsville block very similar to Hobart's was demolished a few years ago, and since then the block has remained empty. It's a somber reminder of how buildings that we take for granted can be removed so quickly - forever.
