Dr. King's hidden legacy
.

Visible due to recent demolition of a building, this painted advertisement is nearly 125 years old. The render and mortar patterns hint at the size and shape of the original circa 1860 building's roof and chimney, with the more substantial four storey building covering and protecting the advertisement around 1890. A tower is currently being built on the site, so hopefully the wall will remain undisturbed and will again be covered. Dr. King's practice was located (briefly) further up Russell Street, on the corner of Flinders Lane.
