Then & Now – Sydney & Melbourne 1836 & 2013
We’ve superimposed a map of Sydney from 1836 and Hoddle’s original plan for Melbourne a few months later in 1837 over the current google map of each city.
You can see the massive changes to the city and landscape since 1836, and it’s still in flux. Interesting how in comparison Melbourne is quite unchanged. Kate went to art school in Sydney, it was her first big city. Now when she heads back there she’s been known to get lost – but after this little experiment this doesn’t make her feel so bad.
