Sydney way back when …

Australia Post Martin Place Sydney.

Sydney way back when had class

and practiced etiquette

a city that was bold as brass

Chorus girls State Theatre Sydney.

with  Summer solstice set

in golden promise for one and all

Wrapped in cotton wool

In the thirties deco made it’s mark

Sydney cruise terminal

and really set the tone

for  long promenades in city parks

with handsome chaperones

Double Bay Sydney in vogue

who were well dressed and very polite

even though not very bright.

The forties were at times intense

Plane flying over Sydney Harbour Brige

with men gone off to war

but sacrifices seemed to make sense

and love was forever more

an integral part of  a life well planned

carving innitials in the sand.

Then came the fifties morality code

in neon city lights

and Sydney  followed a la mode

America in it’s sights.

This city had style way back then

For those who remember when …..
