An amateur photographer with a passion for preserving Australian history is using old railway lines to lead him to relics that have withstood the test of time.
Sydney real estate agent Greg Davis spends his spare time photographing neglected and historical buildings, abandoned bridges and disused train stations around Australia.”They were probably good little towns when they were going, but now you go there and there is half a dozen buildings left,” he said.
So far, he has photographed towns in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia.His most recent expedition was to Western Australia. in March.
Mr Davis edits and researches all the buildings and landmarks so he can provide information with the images.
“I was always amazed by roads that had closed or old bridges, but your parents would never want to stop the car to let you have a look,” he said.
Fast-forward more than 50 years and social media helped him realise other people shared his interest in small-town history.
