Grand Victorian building, dwarfed by surrounding office blocks. It is hidden in plain sight when walking along pedestrianised, Queen Street Mall from George to Albert streets.
The following description appears on Remax website.
62 Queen Street is a 3 storey heritage commercial building that was constructed c1883 for Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society.
Designed in the Gothic Style by one of Brisbane’s foremost Architects of the time Richard Gailey, the property is a fine example of commercial buildings during Brisbane’s transition as a former penal settlement.
The second picture circa 1895, shows the narrow building with spire, flag pole, attic rooms and chimneys.
Presumably, they were removed at the same time the original Brisbane Town Hall was demolished
