Artist's Description


The Rocks is the site of Australia’s first European settlement in 1788.
Since that time, The Rocks has undergone many transformations, from a convict town to a burgeoning port city by the mid 1800s. The 1900s were a period of change and immense upheaval.
These grand old buildings in Sydneys "Rocks " district thankfully survive along with other buildings once threatened by demolision the area of the Rocks was saved by residents and unions from being demolished.

Now the home of restaurants, hotels pubs and history, a walk through the rocks is like walking back in time.

I large amount of buildings have seen better days but thankfully are protected and eventually will be retored to their old grandeur.

If you visit The Rocks Area of Sydney allocate some time and look at the old fittings and designs of days gone by.

And don’t forget * LOOK UP* you never know what is there from old windows, doors staircases. This was the case in this sgot an old window with what i think might be a ornate flower box.

Think about the people that have passed it , the people long gone who have looked out that window and lived in that room what stories it could tell.

So take your time wander the streets stop off at some of the old pubs that dot the historic precinct, and think of times gone by
