Description:

Colonial engraving of Dennys Lascelles Wool Stores at 26 Moorabool Street, Geelong. The Denny Lascelles was the first building in Victorian planned to facilitate storage, inspection and marketing of wool in one operation, and upon completion was the second largest store in the colony. The warehouse regularly fenestrated and lit by addition roof skylights, was a model for later woolstores built throughout Australia and in London.
