The life and work of 20th century architect at Bay library
THE life and works of an architect from the first half of the twentieth century will be covered in the next history talk at the Hervey Bay Library.
The presentation will be put on by Deputy Mayor George Seymour.
"P.O.E. Hawkes was an accomplished architect practicing in the Wide Bay District from about 1914 to 1940, with much of his output still to be seen in Maryborough," Cr Seymour said.
"His buildings can also be seen in the surrounding areas including Bundaberg, Gayndah, Kingaroy, Bauple, and of course Hervey Bay.
"The presentation will cover a number of buildings and structures that Hawke designed in Hervey Bay."
"His buildings have become landmarks in different towns right across the region. While we have had a lot of development in Hervey Bay his work has become overshadowed, but it is still there if you know where to look.
"In addition to buildings which still remain, the talk will also cover some that have sadly been lost."
The presentation is at 2pm on Monday, August 29 at the Hervey Bay Library.
The event is free but bookings are essential by contacting the library on 4197 4220
