Australia isn’t an old country. Settled in 1788, many of the buildings have gone and there is still some Traces of the Past.
I have, as in my last blog, gone back thousands of years. This time I have a bit of the architecture from the not too distant past.
Many of the buildings in Sydney and the surrounding settlements were made of sandstone. Sydney sandstone is a valuable building material now-a-days. This church is in Springwood in the the Blue Mountains which surround Sydney to the west.
Another sandstone structure. A spire on a building in Newtown, Sydney
A mix of building materials. Sandstone, brick and copper on the Trades Hall Center in the City.
