What a glorious morning to go to the Power House at New farm and sketch with the Brisbane USkers. I chose to sketch the market stalls.

The first stage of the New Farm Powerhouse was built in 1927-28 as part of the growing need for Powerhouses for the Brisbane Trams. The power station began operations in 1928, was decommissioned in 1971. It was renovated and re-opened as a modern entertainment hub in 2000.
