Three photos showing the internal demolition progress. The existing floor levels are systematically being removed and are now down to the second floor level.
The Crosshall Building was constructed in two distinct phases in 1878 and 1880 respectively, although the front Crosshall Street façade is homogenous, the rear of the building has a higher and a lower façade.
PHASE 1 - 1878: Crosshall (left hand) when viewed from Crosshall Street looking back toward Preston Street, is a masonry arched framed building and a timber floor load bearing masonry.
PHASE 2 - 1880: Crosshall (right hand) when viewed from Crosshall Street looking back toward Preston Street. The right hand side is a cast iron framed structure with masonry arches. There was also a glazed brick lightwell (see where all the timber is being dumped).
The rear Preston Street elevation - higher and lower façade.
