Art Deco Pumping Station - 'Middle of Nowhere'

This Art Deco pumping station was a real surprise find just outside of Burnie. It caught my eye whilst driving and it was hard to make out its art deco origins because of the painted mural all over it now. For the Deco purist, nothing would be better than to take to it with white or cream paint and restore it to its former glory! I have not seen a pumping station this 'art deco' before, and it was a joy to come across it!

  1. Did you know that this has since been demolished?

    A real shame, I reckon.
