The 1924 PWD AR gives the location as " ML 102, section A".

See attached newspaper clipping for opening date, and architect (Palmer & Turner).

The demolition date of 1966 is a guess, based on a 1966 photo which shows an empty lot where the building was demolished. By the time this photo was taken in the late 60s, a new tower block has sprung up in its place:

Wasn't that where -- on the corner of Ice House Street -- Dairy Farm opened its first "supermarket" on the ground floor and mezzanine in the late 1950s? I remember being treated to ice cream there, after visits to the dentist.
