The simple no fuss lines of this telephone exchange building (circa 1960s) are to be found the Far North Queensland township of Millaa Millaa. The period typeface logo is great, and so are the vertical blinds that were popular in post war design throughout many buildings in the tropics to protect them from the ravages of the tropics. Being that Millaa Millaa is located in the tropical highlands the blinds visually demonstrate the ravages of moisture with just a little bit off moss growth!
