Flinders Street Station, Melbourne, Australia Featured Print

Flinders Street Station, Melbourne, Australia

Flinders Street Station, Melbourne, Australia. In 1882 the government decided to build a new central passenger station to replace the existing ad-hoc construction. A world-wide design competition was held in 1899, with 17 entries received. The competition was for the facade of the station, with the station entrances and platforms to be as specified in a plan developed by the Railway Department. The 500 first prize went to railway employees James Fawcett and H. P. C. Ashworth in 1899, whose design named Green Light was of French Renaissance style included a giant dome and clock tower. Three stories in height, a train shed with three arches running east-west would have covered the platforms, of an average height of 20 metres above the ground. Modifications to the design were carried out by the Railway Commissioners in 1904. The train shed was replaced by individual platform canopies, a basement and fourth storey was added along the Flinders Street frontage, and the arches above each entrance were lowered. Date: 1920s
