Sydney Park, St. Peters, Wednesday August 30th 2006.

Brickmaking became a large-scale industry in the 1870's when a building boom created great demand for brick and the local clay of St. Peters was ideal for brickmaking. The brickfields have now become a large park and these silhouetted chimneys from the old brickworks have been left in situ along with some machinery from the period.

St. Mary's Cathedral, Friday August 18th 2006.

If you look closely at the spires you will notice they are a lighter colour than the rest of the Cathedral. This is due to the fact that they were only added between 1998 and 2000. Work began on St. Mary's in 1865 and the bulk of it was completed by 1928. It would be another seventy years before it was finished.
