Colour photograph of Centennial Hall looking north-east, taken from the Nicholson Street entrance in January 1981. The eastern nave of the Royal Exhibition Building is reflected clearly in the southern face of the Hall's mirrored glass facade, while the buildings along the eastern side of Nicholson Street can been seen in the Hall's eastern face.

This is one of 959 photographs (or images) of the Exhibition Building collated by the Exhibition Trustees as a 10 volume pictorial history of the Exhibition Building spanning the years 1880 to 1985. The pictorial history was instigated by the centenary of the Exhibition Building in 1980 and forms part of a larger Royal Exhibition Building collection of documents, photographs, objects and research files.
