    Guilford Town Hall

    by keeweechic Updated Feb 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The town hall was opened in 1938 on the site of the old Snapper’s and Miners Quarters. The central tower is influenced by the Cubist style of modern architecture which reached Australia during the 1930’s. When Midland amalgamated with Swan, the Guildford Town Hall started to loose some of its former importance. It is used as a theatre and as a reminder of local government history in Guildford.

    Guildford Post Office

    by keeweechic Written Feb 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The beautiful building is quite the landmark of Guildford. It was erected on the site of an old Convict Depot hospital. The cell exercise yard and main cell block of the Convict Depot stood to the south of the Post Office as it is now. In 1901 the public clock was added to the tower along with a bell. The bell is still on the roof of the tower but is no longer rung on the hours.
