Sydney Town Hall

Our grand Town Hall.  Built between 1868 and 1889 on the site of the Old Sydney Cemetery that was used between 1793 and 1820.  Before construction only a basic clearing and exhumation of the land was done which lead to rather interesting and a little macabre finds during  subsequent excavations.  The place is open during business hours and guided tours are also available for a donation.  Exhibitions are also regularly held  as I mentioned previously here.  I also took a colour photo but thought my black and white one looked much more "arty".

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
