1960s Devonport Police Station demolished
Last year I posted a blog on the 1960s designed Devonport Police Station. At the time of taking the photograph a new police station was being built to replace this one. I remember then wondering if it would be reused or demolished. In October of 2013 the entire complex was demolished. Where the station stood is now turf, and to the rear is empty - used for more car parking.
I've noticed that over the period I've been documenting this period how many buildings have been demolished. In future posts I plan to bring more posts that highlight wonderful Modernist designs and buildings that have been lost in Tasmania as well as possibly creating a gallery on my website dedicated to buildings that are no longer with us.
