Sydney, Now and Then

These are two photographs of aerial photographs of Sydney, taken in 1951 and 2001.

The originals are 1.5m x 2m in size, so I could only take the center of the city. The original 2001 photo shows everything right back to Botany Bay.

Note the tram sheds on Bennelong Point. The Opera House will go there. and the Harbour Bridge empties into three main streets instead of the later spaghetti junction of the freeways. The Cahill Expressway is yet to be built, so the people of Sydney can still see Circular Quay instead of a wall.

Not a bad town really, all things considered.
