The former Burnie Paper Mill (closing down only a few months ago) is a massive complex, and full of interesting Art Deco and Modernist industrial designed buildings.
There are several Art Deco designs throughout the complex, including this building pictured. Perhaps a cafe? Does anyone know the buildings original purpose?
The former mill site and Burnie has many examples of post war design and it's a town well worth visiting to take in it's Industrial and commercial post war heritage.
At the time this photograph was taken, the mill was still in operation and this building even then was boarded up and abandoned.
