Description of Content
View of the Escorts Lounge in Centennial Hall, Royal Exhibition Building, during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held at the Royal Exhibition Building in 1981. The Lounge is much more spartan in its furnishings than either the Heads and Ministers Lounge, or the Delegates Lounge, and consists of plan wall panelling extending to the ceiling, circular tables in a central pedestal with four-splayed legs, and steel-tube framed, red upholstered chairs. A coffee machine can be seen placed on a table on the images left.
A colour photographic print on a page of a photograph album. There is a printed caption below the photograph.
Ten photographic albumbs maintained by the Exhibition Trustees' provide an invaluable visual record of the history, use, changes and restoration of the Exhibition Buildings prior to the building being recognised with a World Heritage Listing in 2004.
