Saltwater River Powder Magazine
Gordon Street, FOOTSCRAY, MARIBYRNONG CITY
A powder magazine complex with original buildings of exceptional size and massive bluestone construction, reflecting the aspirations of the colony and aspects of a now obsolete technology. The canal by which the complex was serviced is unusual in Australian terms, and forms a part of the Classification, as do the tramway lines, the blast mounds, perimeter walls, and the more modest brick magazines of the early twentieth century.
