Beautiful pics thanks!  That is really some amazing architecture!  So sad our local rail system is so far behind.

Wow,fantastic pics Rynet!

interesting to see the demographics of the crowds.If you look at the old pics,its almost all men,as opposed to more women in the recent pics.

That was really another era.

Thanks ST, didn't you also live there ? . I like all the photos for different reasons , but love the the one below for the study of people , you can see the women really fussing over their men after the war, and how the women still dressed up , hats and everything . Lovely . :thumleft:
Its impossible, said pride. Its risky, said experience. 

Its pointless, said reason. Give it a try, whispered the heart.

Dit was so 'n deftige en verfynde tydperk gewees daai.  As mens na die kleinste fynste detail in die argitektuur kyk, die hoede en dasse van die mans, die horlosies se fyn kunswerk.  Daar is nie meer tyd of geld vir sulke mooi fyn bouwerk nie.  Pragtige fotos, veral daai eerste een met die sonstrale deur die vensters.  Bitter bitter mooi.  Dankie vir die "trip down memory lane".  :thumleft:

Nice.
Last time I was there I was a fresh faced 19-year old. It was my very first time abroad and I had to get myself from this ant hive to Los Angeles - very exciting!
