The construction on the new Parliament House hasn’t started yet, so you have a clear view of the Government Printing Office (on the left and next to the park).

    Yeah, good one Rod.At 200% enlargement, worker in ‘workbox’ has no height safety or fall restraint gear on. (‘sorry, that’s my job these days’) and also noting the Penfolds Wine sign in the lower foreground. I remember the last days of that pub with gutters full of weeds and guttering falling off. I’m thinking it might have been the Gresham, but not sure now. AMP building probably replaced it. caxton1947
