Abandoned country town hall

This design is typical of many town halls throughout Australia and Tasmania. The front part of the building would date I imagine from the very early 1900s whilst the rear addition would be mid 20th century. This hall was part of a complex that included a Modernist church.  Check out other civic buildings and more in my 20th Century Tasmanian galleries on my website at


  1. The horizontal lines of the annexe and the vertical lines of the hall make the most fabulous composition.

  2. This hall was part of a complex that included a Modernist church but not, I assume, while it was operating as a town hall for ALL citizens. Can the building not be re-purposed now?


About the project

Join me (Thomas Ryan Photography) on a photographic project documenting Tasmanian 20th Century Modernism from the 1930's to the 1980's. The entire project gallery of 1000+ images and counting can be viewed on my website under art projects. I have been undertaking this project for over a decade.
