Topic: Orion (Former MED) Building, 200 Armagh Street

Topic type:

The Armagh Street frontage of the Orion buildings. Formerly the Municipal Electricity Department (MED) buildings. 

These were built in 1928-29, and the well-known MED offices next door on the corner of Manchester and Armagh streets were completed in 1938-39. In its heyday the MED buildings and workshops took over half the block.

The MED was later known as Southpower and evolved into Orion.
