20120817 Queensland's Old Government House

This room was the original entry room in Old Government House. The grand piano was discovered in the basement of the present Government House, restored and brought back to Old Government House. The (new) carpet was woven to a pattern replicating the design in the original wallpaper which adorned the walls of this room. Crows were added to the "branches" of the "trees", hence the black "spot" on the carpet.

 

"Old Government House is one of Queensland's most significant heritage buildings. It was the site of many key events in Queensland's early history and architecturally it remains as a vital link to our colonial past. Completed in 1862, it was the home of Queensland's governors until 1910. The House successively became the University of Queensland's inaugural building, then the lecture rooms of Queensland University of Technology and the office of the National Trust of Queensland. It was the first building in Queensland to be heritage listed in 1978."
