Family fun: old & new

On holidays up north and I have a couple of photos that include a contrast in age. I could collect more… nah, I’ll share them right away.


A five year old Joash mixes it with All Saints church building, North Parramatta. All Saints was built on land bequeathed by Samuel Marsden. If I remember the sign correctly, it was completed in 1845.


At the Sydney Cricket Ground for the final test of the summer, we are all greeted with a new gaping hole. There is a definite absence of Noble and Bradman Stands. The temporary gap allows a fascinating contrast: the old Members’ Stand and the much newer Sydney Football Stadium. I think they provide a pleasing, and surprising, complementary image.
