The tower produced six tonnes of shot weekly up until 1961, when the demand for the lead shot dwindled, because of new firearm regulations.

Williams, a tenant in the tower.The site is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.

  • An iconic presence in Melbourne. Since ancient times, leaving the tower building and on the building of Melbourne's. That blend with the new building. By the way the new building seems to be designed Kisho Kurokawa.
