Restoration of the Fremantle Town Hall – The wrapping #01 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The early stages of the now completed and award-winning restoration of the Fremantle Town Hall involved its wrapping.

The restoration of the 130-year-old Town Hall, which was completed in May 2017, was the largest heritage conservation project ever undertaken by the City of Fremantle. I took this image in August 2016.

It reinstated the building’s traditional appearance by stripping the paint off the walls to reveal the original stucco exterior and included reconstructing the slate roofs and refurbishing the historic clock.

The Vendôme Column - Place Vendôme - PARIS-2018-70 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The Vendôme Column is the centrepiece of the Place Vendôme, a square in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France and one rather famous for its hotels (e.g., the Ritz) and famous dress designers salons (sadly only two remain).

Sitting atop the Vendôme Column, is the Emperor himself, Napoleon who of course commissioned the Column. The veneer of column consists of 425 spiralling bas-relief bronze plates made out of cannon taken from the combined armies of Europe at the battle of Austerlitz.
