Coloured Glass

Queen Victoria Building, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

The Queen Victoria Building, now affectionately known as the QVB, was designed by George McRae and completed in 1898, replacing the original Sydney markets on the site.

The visual message of Sydney’s coat of arms, on the cartwheel stained glass window, is that the beehive depicts business, the sailing ship – trade, and the dolphins – the harbour.

Find out more about the stained glass and the building on the QVB website.

    1. Thanks, it is a wonderful building repurposed as a high end shopping mall but retaining its Victorian splendour.
