The great divide.....


On Saturday in the city we zipped up to Aimee's office on the 13th floor of One40William St.  I was keen to see her views of the city from up there. I was really happy with this shot above because it shows clearly where you enter the Horseshoe Bridge in Northbridge and exit the bridge in the city.  Northbridge and the city centre have been divided for the last 100 years by the railway lines running north and south, but these now run underground and work is well underway to create the brand new Perth City Link area which will bring the entertainment and cultural venues on both sides together. If you look to the right in the shot below there is still the odd glimpse of the Swan River between the skyscrapers, and down below the Wesley Church on the corner of Hay and William St. where I had hoped to take some shots of the stained glass windows, another time as it was all locked up. I hope your week has started off well, take care and stay safe.....

  15. Oh my goodness, what an amazing view! I love the idea of finally reuniting the two sides, seems they should never have been divided in the first place! Hope your week is off to a great start too :)
