Day in the Rocks, Sydney

Sydney Urban sketchers went to the Rocks recently.  The Rocks is an area which was developed early in British settlement and is close to Sydney cove.  The building above is the Australian Steamship Navigation Company Building located on George st and Hickson Road.  It was designed by William Wardell in the Federation Anglo-Dutch style, completed in 1884.  This building was a warehouse which held goods which arrived in the Harbour until the custom duty was paid.

This is a quick sketch of a colonial building behind the Rocks in Millers Point.  It was called Millers Point because of the big windmill  which ground the flour for the settlement.

I sketched the side of this Millers Point building which curves around the land it was built on.

Back lane in the Rocks.
It was a great day with fellow Urban sketchers...and it was all day!
