Destroyed icons: Bellevue Hotel (Brisbane)

Built in 1885-1886, the Bellevue Hotel stood on the corner of George and Alice Streets. Architect F.F. Holmes designed the three storey building which featured two wide verandahs with balustrades of cast iron.  The demolition of this famous Brisbane landmark on 20 April 1979, on the order of then Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen, was widely condemned by the Brisbane public.
