As one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Sydney is worth celebrating.
Old Sydney commemorates in pictures Sydney's journey from the early days of settlement until the opening of its crowning glory, the Harbour Bridge. Its 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.
