The Mercury Building - Hobart
The main headquarters of the Mercury Newspaper is based in Hobart. It's main facade was modernised in the 20th century in the Art Deco style. Interestingly the former headquarters of the Mercury in Launceston, St John Street, was also given a face lift in a similar functionalist style. The Hobart Mercury building in the CBD is just one of several impressive art deco landmarks in Hobart. Others that are close by include the Hydro-Electric Commission Building, Prudential Insurance Building and the Royal Hobart Hospital, T&G Building, the Commonwealth bank to name but a few.
