The Vendôme Column - Place Vendôme - PARIS-2018-70 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The Vendôme Column is the centrepiece of the Place Vendôme, a square in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France and one rather famous for its hotels (e.g., the Ritz) and famous dress designers salons (sadly only two remain).

Sitting atop the Vendôme Column, is the Emperor himself, Napoleon who of course commissioned the Column. The veneer of column consists of 425 spiralling bas-relief bronze plates made out of cannon taken from the combined armies of Europe at the battle of Austerlitz.

Central Wool Company Building, Fremantle, Western Australia - Australian Heritage Sites - Image 2019-01 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The Central Wool Company building at 21-23 Henry Street, Fremantle, Western Australia was constructed in 1913.

In it is heritage listing the building is described as “a representative example of the commercial architectural style at the turn of the century, derived from Victorian precedents. The place is a fine, substantially intact, example of a Federation Warehouse style building that makes a significant contribution to the streetscape. The facade is a critical element in the streetscape of Henry Street located as it is between two significant early buildings. The place is of social significance as evidenced by its classification by the National Trust.

Today, the building is known as the St John of God Hall houses the Notre Dame University's School of Medicine.

This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking.
