Sandstone wall

This beautiful sandstone wall runs along the railway line near Central station, on Elizabeth St. It has recently been cleaned. Sandstone is the "Sydney stone", beautifully exploited in colonial times for building. Click here to see more examples of Sydney sandstone.

    That's a long wall. So nice and clean.
