Archerfield Passenger Terminal - 2006

These photos, taken on 6 May 2006, show the interior of the art-deco Brisbane/Archerfield Passenger Terminal. This building was the former Operations-Administration building and once housed the aerodrome's original Control Tower cab on the roof. The building's original design included airline offices, passenger processing areas, a mail sorting room and a cafeteria on the ground floor. Civil Aviation administration offices and accommodation for the airport Superintendent were located on the first floor, and Aeradio facilities (later Flight Service) occupied the second floor.

The building is presently owned by Archerfield Airport Corporation and the upper floors are tenanted and used as offices.

The photo below shows the DCA 'wings' logo etched into a glass panel in the Terminal's foyer. This version of the logo differs somewhat from the more commonly known type used post-war and probably dates from the building's original construction.
