Sacred Sites

Sacred Sites Image

The Jones Bond Store was a large complex of store buildings in the heart of Southbank.

Construction on the buildings began in 1888 by architects Taylor and Lloyd.

It is one of the largest 19th century store complexes in Victoria and one of the few remaining sites from Southbank’s early industrial past.

The Jones Bond Store is an example of how warehouses and shipping facilities were a lot closer to the city centre in the 1900’s and how the area was constantly busy with shipping activity.

The style, considered Victorian period and the character of the building, reflects Melbourne’s importance as a port city during the post gold rush years.
