Sorry I can't visit as many other Daily Photos as I would like at the moment. I am away on family holidays, and my internet connection is a very slow-dial-up. But I can keep publishing!

In the background, one of the most lovely of the colonial buildings, Hyde Park Barracks.
In the middle, the open-top tourist bus, of the kind so popular in many cities. I see these every day, as they "live" near where I live, and pass by near where I work.
In the foreground, a fruit stall with lots of yummy summer stone fruit. Great to pick up something for lunch when countering the effects of too many Christmas parties!
All Sydney's street furniture - kiosks, toilets, light and power poles (also pictured - they also double as banner holders and many also have a facility for chaining bikes), bus shelters, are supplied by French company JC Decaux.

Green Bans occurred in the early 1970s were when building unions refused to demolish old buildings with heritage value, notably in The Rocks area.
This park in inner suburb Erskineville came about in because local residents and the Council and the construction union combined between 1992 and 1996 to prevent the land being sold by the state government for development. It's a lovely oasis of green in a heavily congested and built-up area.
In the back ground is the building featured yesterday.
More about Green bans here.

There was also a station at Rookwood Cemetery, which was dismantled in 1957 and transported to Canberra, where it was rebuilt to become All Saints Church in the suburb of Ainslie.
Below is the platform side, taken from Prince Alfred Park, across the railway lines.
There's more views at Sydney Daily Photo Extra.
