The Victorian College of
Pharmacy occupied this site
from 1884 - 1960.

The Victorian College of Pharmacy,
also known as the Melbourne School
of Pharmacy and the Melbourne
College of Pharmacy, was established
in 1881 by the Pharmaceutical Society
of Victoria. The college was moved to this
location at 360 Swanston Street in
1884, into a building that stood on
this site and had originally been the
County Court of the Colony of Victoria.

The college continued to operate here
until 1960, when it moved to 381 Royal
Parade, Parkville.

This plaque was erected in 2006 to
commemorate the 125th anniversary
of the founding of the college.
