Yep, that Slyv.

I picked him up from Avalon airport and showed him around Melbourne. We didn't go into Pentridge that time, but I'm pretty sure Slyv went in one night with some other guys.

He's a really nice and talented guy.

Cheers,

Doug

Ah right, yes he is quite talented.

Finger's crossed that Motts also makes an appearance here soon, before we lose all the good abandonments..

Already lost a few in recent years.

I believe the original architect was Gustav Joachimi, an architect for the Public Works Department.
However I'm quite sure he only designed the main entrance/façade and front walls/ watchtowers.
I'm unsure about the additional blocks.

Hi, can anyone tell me if the old H-Division has been demolished as part of the development? I know that Jika-Jika was demolished, but I cand find any information about the infamous H-Division.
