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".

A sad day

Our beloved Sophie died today.
This photo was taken last November.  She used to love to curl up and snooze in my snuggie blanket.  It used to annoy me because her long white fur would get all over it.  I miss that now.
