Court House

People tell me this used to be the Main Police Station for Victoria's City Police. Now, however, it is used as the court house. I don't know anything more about this building except that I like its unusual style. I'm hoping some of my more knowledgeable local readers can fill me in on a little of its history. It's on Fisgard Street, just across from the Chinese Public School.

Major blooper here: This building is NOT the court house. It houses the Capital Regional District Offices. Thanks to Victorian reader Corey Burger who pointed out my error.

Actually, it is the CRD office. AFAIK, the building is brand new, just in a Disneyland-style "old-timey" style.

Well, that's some mistake. Too bad - it looks like a court house and the Fiat Justicia suggests the same. Hmmm.

Awesome. I believe this image is an HDR? Superb angle of shot!

It was ten years or more back that the old building was demolished, but they kept the heritage facade.
It is beautiful and vintage.

If I'm not mistaken, when the original police station still functioned, it had the classic blue lights/globes in front.
