Perth City Hall interior images released
June 19 2012
The Trust, which is campaigning to transform the Edwardian hall into an indoor market, claim that the images bolster their campaign by illustrating the integrity of the interior spaces.
Campaigner James Comrie, who took these pictures, said: ''The frequently repeated statement ... that Perth City Hall is a 'rotting shell' have now been shown conclusively to be completely untrue and utterly without foundation.
''The excellent condition of the interior is clearly evident and Perth and Kinross Council's property management department is to be congratulated on the standard to which it has managed to maintain this fine building at minimal cost during the eight years it has been out of use.”
Historic Scotland recently vetoed a decision by Perth & Kinross Council to replace the landmark with a civic square.
