Sunday Stills, the next challenge: 100+

Parliamentary Library

Ed’s challenge this week is to post a photo of something more than 100 years old

Completed in 1899, The Parliamentary Library is the oldest of the four buildings that make up the Parliamentary complex in Wellington (the others being Parliament House, the Beehive and Bowen House).

According to wikipedia

The library was designed in Gothic revival style and was fire resistant, being constructed of masonry. It had an iron fire-door separating the library from the main entrance section. This saved the library from the fire of 1907 which destroyed the rest of the (wooden) parliament buildings.
