The French Connection

Sydney City's "street furniture" is provided by French company, JC Decaux. This includes bus shelters (which some people complain don't shelter you from the sun in summer, or rain!), power poles, rubbish bins, toilets, telephone booths.

Here's an example in Elizabeth St in the city. You can see Hyde Park through the glass.

There's some pics of a Decaux toilet on my other site, Sydney Daily Photo Extra. Just quietly, they appear better maintained than the free toilets you find around Paris these days.


  1. Yes, to see this french trademark (is it the right word?)street after street so far away from home made us smile!

  2. The company looks after our bus shelters too.They seem to have the same design too.
