Sydney Town Hall is a much loved building in Sydney. It was open for inspection yesterday and the interior spaces are wonderful. These sketches show the side views as we needed warm places to sit on this cold winter day.
The foundation stone for this building was laid in 1868 and in 1875 the council moved in although it wasn't finished. Sydney Town Hall was finished, complete with clock tower, in 1889 and it was the tallest building in the city for many years.
