The best carpark in Sydney on August 28 1984 was at Martin Place due to the many train strikes that beseiged Sydney commuters.

The building rising is Norwich House in the view from Kirribilli.

MLC's roof doesn't look so cluttered in that shot.

1972?

Some strange green-enhancement in that shot! e.g. right background is Royal Sydney Golf Course (and Woollahra golf course, Woollahra oval and Dangar fields) stands out yet you'd never pick it from a neutral shot from the same angle.

great shot fox-probably close to 1969-70.
the hotel across from wynyard park is nearing completion, and that was finished 1969.

1967

I've seen this one on Flickr. It's from 1958 if I can remember. You can make out the mast of the AWA Building behind the southern pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
