St James is another interesting Sydney railway station. Like Museum station, which we featured yesterday, it is on the city loop and was built in 1926.
The station interior is quaintly retro and has historical displays to look at while you are waiting for your train.
During our visit to Sydney last week, we stayed near Museum railway station – opened in 1926 and one of our favourite underground stations in Sydney.
The station’s name refers to the fact that is near the Australian Museum, but the station is itself a bit of a museum, with old wall tiles, signs and advertisements. A Ford for £173 ($346)? My, times have changed!
There are some very impressive clocks at Sydney Central Station – on the tower (above) and also in the main station concourse.
We also liked the Italianate tower on Sydney Central Station (above) and the tower on Christ Church St Laurence nearby in George Street – photobombed by the Central Station tower in the photo below!
Of course, we also saw Sydney Tower repeatedly during our visit to Sydney last week. Built in 1975 and standing 309 metres tall, the distinctive tower is still the tallest building in Sydney and is visible from many parts of the city.
While we were in Sydney last week, we saw a number of interesting and historic towers – including the tower on the GPO (above, seen from near Circular Quay station) and the AWA tower in York Street, below.
We noticed plenty of interesting clocks during our recent visit to Sydney. The ornate clock above is on the Customs House, near Circular Quay, and the one below is on the GPO in Martin Place.
And we spotted this one in York Street, near Wynyard station.
