It is the new City of Perth library and history center next to the Perth Town Hall, fronting Hay Street, and is accessible from St Georges Terrace via the new Cathedral Square precinct. Opening in March 2016.
The clue was the words City of Perth library in the photo with Opening soon. From there I searched for City of Perth library in Google Search.
Located near the newly renovated Treasury Building and Cathedral. Think it is the Treasury Building in the reflection?
Thanks so much for joining in, Sue. You nailed it! How do you know for sure that it is a circular building?
Hi Ms Lockyer
To be honest I’m not sure the building was circular. I was stumped trying to work out the correct term for a building with a circular shape.
This photo was taken at 573 Hay St, Perth. It is the new City of Perth Library (Opening 1st March 2016) It is behind Saint George’s Cathedral. I typed in the words City of Perth Library because I could see the faint words in the glass panels.
Thanks for your information Isabelle – you got the location right! Saint Georges Cathedral is one of the buildings close by. What makes you think this is the building in the reflection?
exact location :31.9551_N_115.8612_E_
this the new City of Perth Library. 573 hay street Perth.
the useful information was that it said on the window `city of Perth library` and I knew it was the knew building because it said `coming soon`.and then I searched the City of Perth Library and it said 573 hay street in google.
The building is circular.
The land mark near by is Perth Town Hall.
Fantastic detective work, David. You were first correct responder this week. I hope you keep doing WITW.
