The Picton Reading Room


Moving on up William Brown Street from the Museum we come to the Picton Reading Room. Designed by Cornelius Sherlock in 1875 and opened in 1879 and is similar to the British Museum Reading Room in London.

A superb composition and image. I never knew this was called the Picton reading rooms.
Les Auld: Named after Sir James Allanson Picton, Chairman of the Libraries Committee and built in 1875, Also known as Picton's Gasometer. Thanks for the comment.
