Another Willow Court Building Destroyed by Fire

Today I edit one of my photographs from Willow Court // Royal Derwent Hospital project in tribute to the loss of yet another important piece of our Modernist heritage. Today Ward G was burnt down after a deliberately lit fire. The building dated from the 1930s and will now be demolished. I have documented the Willow Court // Royal Derwent Hospital as a long term project as its an important part of Tasmania's history and there has to be a record of high quality images that document the site for posterity so that future generations can understand what once was.
