This huge Christmas Tree was inside 333 Collins Street, Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. The building is registered by the Heritage Council of Victoria. It was built between 1891 and 1893 to a design by architects Lloyd Tayler and Alfred Dunn. The crossed rib dome inspired by Italian Baroque and Moorish precedents, is considered one of the great Victorian era interiors of Melbourne, and was narrowly saved from demolition in the 1970s following public opposition led by the National Trust. It was originally built for the Commercial Bank of Australia, and was completed just as the 1880s financial boom collapsed – the bank had to close its ornate cast iron gates in April 1893 for a time to keep out desperate depositors at the height of the crisis. The original façade of the building was refaced in 1939, in turn replaced by the current podium level stone façade, the central section of which is a simplified version of the 1893 original.
