This very ornamental spiral staircase made from skillfully wrought iron can be found in the Victoria Building in Sydney/Australia.
At the upper end of the staircase there is... nothing
There's just a small hatch that apparently leads to a service passage onto the domed ceiling of the building. Quite a waste of a really marvellous staircase but very beautiful to look at.
