About this item

Sydney is graced with natural beauty—a vast and ancient flooded valley, it is a waterscape of beaches, rivers, bays and harbor with Sandstone beneath and eucalyptus around its shores. Sydney: Then and Now captures the growth and evolution of the city in this remarkable setting through the last century and highlights both what has dramatically changed and what has remained resolutely the same. Many of the photos are taken from Sydney at Federation, when the city had just overtaken Melbourne as Australia's most populous city. The photos of today's Sydney are a continuation of that story, of a city still booming, the foundations still there, but now congested with skyscrapers and transport connections. Sites featured include: The harbor from Milsons Point, McMahon Point, and Dawes Point, Circular Quay, Fort Macquarie, Farm Cove, Government House, Royal Botanic Gardens, Bridge Street, Wynyard Square, Martin Place, the General Post Office, Queens Square, Elizabeth Street, King Street, Market Street, Sydney Town Hall, Queen Victoria Building, Bathurst Street, the Australian Museum, Homebush, Parramatta River, Callan Park, Darling Harbour, Pyrmont Bridge, Argyle Cut, Mosman Bay, Manly, Coogee, Bondi, and Watsons Bay.
