Discovery (Post#11) : Manchester Unity Building
The building was built during Depression and the tallest building in Melbourne in 1932. First building in Victoria state to have escalators and featured the largest diesel generator of its time in Australia to power three high-speed lift. It was also one of the first Victorian buildings with automatic cooling and rubbish and postal chutes on every floor.

Love this building! I often think Melbourne CBD isn’t very architecturally interesting, but we just need to remember to look up and you can find so many amazing old buildings like this one. One of my favourites.
Initially yes, but when you look further, you will be amazed how beautiful the city is, for me its an interesting one, thank you for visiting…
