Hyde Park Barracks


Urban Sketchers met at Hyde Park Barracks on Sunday morning.  After a very cold and wet day on Saturday it was wonderful to sit in the sun sketching this wonderful building. This was designed by the convict architect Francis Greenway between 1818 and 1819 and was originally built to house convict men and boys.   It seemed like the church bells would never end between the surrounding cathedral and churches.
