Followers of my blog may remember a post I did back in February 2010 about the landmark Art Deco offices of the Hobart Mercury Newspaper head office.This weeks post is of the Mercury printing rooms, where the newspaper production happens. It's just around the corner from the towering Art Deco main offices and there are a number of interesting details of the building including the steel frame windows and the clever use of bricks to add detail above the windows as well as the striking central detailed column. Often it's the main period buildings that are in the central streets that are noticed, but if one walks down side streets than it's where one often finds exciting period details!
