Metropole Mansions, Queen's Parade
Metropole Mansions, Queen's Parade
Designed as individual boarding houses with the central section being the Metropole Hotel, these opened in 1897. In WWII they were used as an internment camp for enemy aliens. I understand they were demolished the year after this picture was taken.
