Last week, I made an trip into the city with some old photos and a digital camera. Here is what I created......

Very well done Adam D! =D>
Noticed you used my files (a bit sneaky of you). :wink:
Just one mistake, the Fink’s building was on the north-east corner of Flinders and Elizabeth Streets and the 2006 image you show is of Hosie’s Tavern which stands on the north-west corner. #-o

Ooops! Thanks for the correction. I am now curious about the north east corner.

Thanks also for the source photos. I saved them a long while back and forgot where they came from.

The APA would be fascinating if it still existed. It'd be a true icon of our Victorian days. Just brilliant.
