Yes folks we have history right here in Sydney. We also have plenty of hidden gems. Old city streets that were once hip and happening that have now been turned into shopping malls. Lot’s of little lane ways once luring the unsuspecting with the promise of buried treasure now harbour slick night clubs and grand hotels once surrounded by lush gardens now wait to go under the hammer of eager developers. Still a great city. Always growing.
Reaching for the stars with it’s deck chaired roof tops and it’s ever climbing sky scrapers. Sydney is an enigma. A city that never gives up. Here then is a pictorial tribute to a city I will always love. Below from left to right ‘Vogue Theatre Surrey Hills, street crowd in ‘The Rocks’ during the depression, jewellery store 1930s, Directing traffic George Street, Tram passes QVB. Building the post office Martin Place, ushers at ‘The State Theatre, plane flying over incomplete Harbour Bridge, Actors taking an encore after Theatre Performance during WW11, City trams on George, Chorus girls State Theatre, David Jones around 1920. We were always a class act.
Sydney is a cosmopolitan city and fully deserves it’s reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Over the New Year holiday Sydney siders will do as they’ve always done. They will promenade the city streets, hang out at the beach and take long lunches.
Sydney we salute You !
