Coopers Alley

Coopers Alley ran north from Flinders Lane between Elizabeth and Queen streets. In 1895, it offered rear access to the Union Bank on Collins Street, and contained the premises of Sands and McDougall Pty Ltd and a few other merchants. Coopers Alley and the surrounding buildings were demolished in the 1970s for the creation of the Optus Centre on Collins Street.
