Old Sydney commemorates, in pictures, Sydney's journey from the early days of settlement to the opening of its crowning glory, the Harbour Bridge.

As one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Sydney is worth celebrating. Fascinating photographs detail how familiar scenes such as George Street, Martin Place and Bennelong Point used to look up to 200 years ago, as well as the fashion, transport and recreation of the day.
