I new it would be quick to die in city photos...oh well...I tried.
This was long overdue...
Finally updated my photos of Sydney...over 3 years later. These are from Sept 21.
First off, the contentious issue of the day, the Spanish Gates proposal. Here are the "historical surroundings" from standing on the proposed site.
Now the walkabout
Holy Angels Convent, northend George St
Executive Place, northend Charlotte St
St. Patrick's Church Museum, northend Esplanade
Harbour Place, where downtown meets Northend
the site of Spanish Gates at the end of Dorchester St
A sad replacement for the original
More historicness across from Spanish Gates :ohno:
Finally something that actually is historic...surrounded by newness
Delta got a facelift
The reason for the controversy around Spanish Gates
Boardwalk Skyline, still without Spanish Gates :ohno:
Ducks beside a perfect vacant lot for a highrise
Esplanade and Townsend
The place to be on Saturday nights!
Along the Esplanade
Some new development replacing an aging derelict building...recently finished (the pale brown one).
I think it's the only building that didn't get redone since my last thread
Spanish Bay Premiere Suites
It's that season again
Gov't of Canada building, Dorchester St
St George's church, northend Charlotte St
Bank of Montreal
