25 ornate remnants of a once magnificent building.

Appropriately, the stonework remains of the Colonial Mutual Building lie close to the Royal Exhibition Building; both were built by David Mitchell.

Built in 1896, the building stood on the corner of Collins and Elizabeth Streets. The stones, made from Harcourt and Cape Woolamai granite, are now a reminder of a glorious edifice.

Colonial Square is Stop 3 on the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens Walk. Download the free app to take your own walk through history.
