Marvellous market celebrated

Nearly 160 years ago council surveyor, talented architect and engineer William Downe sat at his desk and designed the Castlemaine Market Building, a structure now considered to be of national significance. 
William’s desk is part of a historical display at the Market Building and his great granddaughters Marion Downe and Margaret Benady, visited the historic building last week to celebrate his impressive contribution to the Castlemaine streetscape. Catch last Friday’s Mail for the full story.
