J Minty & Co Sheetmetal Workers

This corker of a 1960s design is located on the outskirts of the Hobart Central Business District.  It looks like you could have walked straight into a 1960s set. This commercial building, it's a very interesting 1960s design, with elaborate use of glass and steel frame "curtain wall" design, typical of the period, allowing ample natural light into the workspace. The main advertising that jutts out from the center of the building  is a period piece in itself with the custom made "Minty's" logo featuring boldly.
