Not as historic as others, but this is from the Gold Coast in the 60's.

For some reason I can't stop looking at that Gold Coast picture. The fashions, the pavement, the cars, the signs and the expression on that womans face - looking at the Meter Maid.

Paradise Towers doesn't look any different to four decades ago! (No doubt the interior's been renovated, though.)

Cul - definitely 1991 for CAGA demolition. I was working opposite until Oct 1992, and GPT/GMT were already well underway with construction by then.

im pretty sure demolition carried over to 1992.GPt was completed in 1993.
GMT didnt start construction until 1993.

I was working opposite GPT, so maybe I didn't really notice GMT - my bad if that's the case. GPT was around 18 levels by Oct '92.
