See You in Court

A few days back we went to the Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth. Our favourite hidden corner of the art gallery is the old police court, which is part of the Centenary Galleries.

The building was designed by John Grainger (Percy Grainger’s father) and completed in 1905. It served as the police courts until 1982 and still has several holding cells.
