Stop 12 The Advocate Building

Stop 12 The Advocate building

Following the destruction by fire of the original Advocate building, the two-storey symmetrical building was purpose-built for newspaper production in early 1920s. Further additions were made in 1950 under the direction of the architect Albert Freak from Devonport. The large entrance was replaced with a series of small windows and a smaller entrance, which in turn has been re-located.
