    By: Michael O'Brien14th Sep 2022 5:21PMThis was a very impressive building with marble staircases and cedar skirting boards 300mm high. During my early days of working at the Steelworks (1966-1983) there was an unexploded shell in the entrance foyer. This shell was mounted on a timber plinth with an explanation that it had been collected after the shelling by a Japanese submarine on 8th June 1942. This display disappeared in the 1970s when BHP became closer to Japanese companies when it purchased equipment from them (eg the No2 Bloom Mill).
