Tonight I entered what appears to be a not-terribly-interesting building from the street, and discovered this:
The domed ceiling of the 1891 banking chamber of what was the Commonwealth Bank of Australia building at 333 Collins St. The dome has been preserved within the modern building. That light through the skylights is not natural; there's a massive building above the dome now.

I don't know how I have never seen this before.

  1. I used to do my work's banking there in the late '70s when I worked in Collins St. I'd forgotten how beautiful it is.
