A reprieve for this building

The Ekka's (Brisbane Exhibition, for our overseas visitors) famous show-bag pavilion has been given a reprieve and will operate as usual at this year's show in August, for the last time. After this year's Ekka, the building will give way to a multi-billion dollar re-development of the show grounds. Although there is talk that the facade will stay and be incorporated in the new development.

  1. I hope they don't do away with this beautiful brickstone façade.


  2. I agree - not to keep the facade would be tragedy.

  3. How old is this facade? Does it have some special meaning that makes it better than any other facade? I am in a country that never gets news from other countries unless we are at war with that country. So I have no idea what this is all about.
