The building was constructed in approximately 1914 on the corner of Chapel Street and Commercial Road. A landmark of the area, it housed the Charles Read’s Emporium (which also later traded as Charles Moore), a department store which at the time was the largest in Australia. The building’s twin beacons, which sit atop large clad domes, were once visible like lighthouses for miles around, but no longer operate. The lower stories were converted into various shops with malls in the 1980s and named “Pran Central”.
