This Rawin building was originally constructed on Heard Island in 1953. It was moved to Mawson in 1955 after the ANARE station on Heard Island closed down, and later transferred to Davis.
The oldest building on station today, its conservation status is undisputed.

The bar and the recreation room at Davis occupied the same building. These photographs show interior shots of the post tensioned box system.
This old carpenter's workshop, above right, today lies empty and stripped of all its fittings. Carpenters' workshops have always been integral to the station's maintenance and contribute to the general morale of its occupants, as they are used extensively for hobbies.
