Argyle Street Carpark - Hobart

Argyle Street Car Park block has been noted as being the first parking complex in Hobart, having been built in the 1960s.  The complex symbolises and tells a story of a time when more and more people were getting access to the automobile and this is also reflected through the massive changes that took place in the 1950s/60s with construction of main highway arteries that have to cope with commuters in and out of Hobart.  There are 2 main parking complex's within Hobart CBD.  Argyle Street Car Park is important in showing the arrival of independent travel as well as being the first in Hobart.
