AUSTRALIA: c.1880s 'VICTORIA COFFEE PALACE Next to Town Hall, Melbourne. Three Minutes from Flinders St Station. Trams Pass the Door' two-sheet advertising poster, size 101x64cm, linen-backed, some repairs.

Coffee Palaces were large and elaborate temperance hotels built in Australia in the boom years of the 1880s which included all the facilities of a grand hotel, such as a large number of rooms for accomodation as well as dining rooms, billiard rooms, lounges and parlours. The Victoria Coffee Palace was located in Collins Street adjacent to the Town Hall; its Collins Street frontage was demolished when the Town Hall was extended in the 1920s, but the Little Collins Street portion survives as the Victoria Hotel.
