John Reid and Nephews Building facade


This two-storey brick building was constructed circa 1911 for Ivor Eliot Peyton and used as a light engineering factory and warehouse by Brisbane company John Reid and Nephews from 1911 until 1969. The company specialised in wire, rope and hardware. In 1987 the building was purchased by The Australian Telecommunications Commission who demolished all but the façade in order to accommodate construction of the Telstra tower at the rear of the building.
