Dates this building was used to house judicial proceedings: 1886 to present

That limits the last photo to being no older than 1886 – I had thought it older. I note the gas light. I see here that gas street lighting in Wollongong dates from 1883. The light seems to be on the corner of Crown and Church Streets so this is looking up the hill towards the Court House and St Michael’s.  Here is a grab from a video I made last September  when Jack Vidgen was in Wollongong. It’s the same spot, pretty much.
