Walter Reid was built in 1883. Architect: J. Cowlishaw. In the 1980s, the building was demolished, with only the façade saved. It is an example of ‘facadism’ approach to heritage taken by the Bjlke-Petersen government. This ended with the heritage register protection enacted by subsequent state governments, after 1990.
