Modern concrete silos and grain elevators are a persistent source of interest and fascination for architects, industrial archaeologists, painters, photographers, and artists. The legacy of the Australian examples of the early 1900s is appreciated primarily by a popular culture that allocates value to these structures on aesthetic grounds. Several aspects of construction history associated with this early modern form of civil engineering have been less explored.

Literary magazine editors used to be rather imperial in style, exercising a great deal of influence in what has always been a rather restricted field: literary culture. Clem Christesen and Stephen Murray-Smith projected real authority as they fought the cultural and political battles of the day.

Recently the RHSV took part in Open House Melbourne which concentrated our minds on the history and architecture of our home, the Australian Army Medical Corps Drill Hall which was built, like so many others in 1938 in the build-up to WWII. The building's history, its original purpose and its architecture are inextricably linked.  And who better to explain those connections than Mike O'Brien? Mike will be addressing Drill Halls in general - what is drill? what happens in drill halls?
