The old Federation style Chamberlain Hotel on the corner fascinates me. Typically, it has been patched into the pomo development of the past decade.

Note the loud speakers in the foreground. They are in case of terrorist attack, among other things. Welcome to post 2001 Sydney!

From Campbell Street, looking back towards the corner where the pictures above were taken. If you look closely, you will see Billy Elliot is still running.

And on the corner, one of Sydney’s surviving Starbucks.

We’ll continue the tour later on. πŸ™‚
