Remember when it was fab for local civic leaders to pose for photos looking at maps with highrises in the background. Below is a shot of three members of Rockdale Council at Brighton Le Sands in 1970.

I imagine the councillors are no longer with us. Sadly the building behind them still is.

Ron Rathbone (middle) died in 2007. He was one of the best known councillors and Mayors in that council area.
He was very active on council and wrote 15 books on local history.

The 'continuous walkway from Botanic Gardens to Blackwattle Bay is only being held up by the tiny piece of Barangaroo South near the casino. So frustrating! In fact it extends beyond the gardens to Woolloomooloo finger wharf. And a further section of Blackwattle Bay was opened last year!

What do you do when you get to Finger Wharf? The McElhone Stairs would be too much for most of those in this forum, a lift seems the only solution.
