A Rolling Shift

In preparation for the erection of a new Government block on the corner of Harley and Bridge Streets, the main administrative building of the Forest Service was demolished and a second building shifted on rollers to a new site at the end of what was the old Police Station, This work, a little more complicated than it appeared, was completed without a hitch. Now that thia block is in position, other buildings used by the department opposite the new police station will be demolished.


The administration block comes down


The next block has been winched forward on to rollers


And then winched sideways to its new site – simple, isn't it?
