Gas Stripping Tower - Brisbane Qld

I went to the Davies park markets today, and behind the markets is an iconic, historic Gas Stripping tower. It is the only one of it's kind in Australia.
It is a demountable cast iron tower was manufactured in 1912 by Robert Dempster & Sons Ltd, of Elland, Yorkshire, and transported in segments to Brisbane, where it was erected at the West End Gasworks in Montague Road operated by the South Brisbane Gas & Light Company. The South Brisbane gas and Light Company was established in 1885, in direct competition to the Brisbane Gas Corporation. The tower was decommissioned in 1949.  It is on the heritage register.
