MacDonaldtown railway station


Sketch club met at Macdonaldtown railway station last weekend.  Macdonaldtown is a charming little suburb between Redfern and Newtown. This station was built in 1892. I am amused by Wikipedia's information saying that in 1986 a local 18 year old boy and his 14 year old brother painted the station pink. They stuck a table, chairs and pot plant (all painted pink) on it  to enhance it' prettiness. The pink seems to be painted over and furniture removed, unfortunately.
