Retro Photos Show the Inside of Offices in the 1970s and ’80s

The office has transformed dramatically since the 1970s: in layout, in culture and in technology. It was a decade that saw the worker become more individualistic, with office design becoming more ergonomic and also getting some ‘pop’ in color. The computer was at the start of its journey that would change everything, and therefore so were the working processes.

These photographs from the Melbourne Harbour Trust series in the Public Record Office Victoria collection reveal some of the office spaces and work products being used by Port of Melbourne Authority (PMA) employees at their Market Street offices in the 1970s and ’80s and World Trade Centre location from 1983.
