Walker Street, North Sydney, Friday 25th May 2007.

Then & Now. The image on the left was taken in 1966 by Jenny Robinson (who lived on this street) just before she left to live in London. She asked me to photograph it as it appears today, which I was very happy to do. I love to look at old city photos and see the differences that the passage of time brings about.

The Rocks, Thursday 24th May 2007.

Built in 1816, Cadmans Cottage is one of only a handful of Sydney buildings that remain from the first 30 years of the colony. Over the years this sandstone cottage has been a water transport headquarters, a sailors' home, a water police station, and is now a museum. These visiting school children have dressed up for their visit.

Holy Trinity Church, Berrima, Southern Highlands, Sunday 20th May 2007.

Designed by Edmund Blacket in a simple Gothic Revival Style, the church was built in 1849 from stone quarried directly behind it. The stained glass windows came from a church in Cornwall in England and are thought to date to the 15th century. Blacket was the New South Wales Colonial Architect and responsible for many churches and public buildings in the colony as well as the main building of Sydney University.

Kent Street, Friday 18th May 2007.

Interesting weather across Sydney today. Lots of (very welcome) rain in the morning and then in the afternoon the wind got up and the heavy grey clouds completely cleared to reveal a blue sky in the space of an hour. I don't think I have ever seen a sky clear so fast.

Hyde Park Barracks built between 1817 & 1819 by convict labour provided lodgings for convicts working in government employment around Sydney until its closure in 1848. It became an Immigration Depot for single female immigrants (many fleeing the Irish Famine) until 1886. From 1887 to 1979 law courts and government offices were based at the Barracks.

Mortlake, Thursday 10th May 2007.

The Mortlake Ferry, also known as the Putney Punt, is a cable ferry operating between Mortlake and Putney on the Parramatta River. It is the last remaining car ferry on Sydney's waterways. The ferry service has been in operation since 1928 and this ferry was built in 1960. While carrying much less than it has in the past the ferry still operates daily and is protected by a National Trust heritage order.
