Elder Park Library, 228a Langlands Road, Elder Park Street, 1901, J J Burnet

Elegant Edwardian Baroque, the shallow colonnaded portico follows the shape of a small dome above the otherwise inconspicuous entry. Pedimented pavilions to rear, original interior with deep cornices and a coffered segmental-vaulted ceiling.
