The Rocks, railway substation

The Rocks railway substation and switchhouse is located on an escarpment above Trinity Avenue, in the inner city suburb of Dawes Point. This rendered brick, four-storey building was constructed in 1932 in the Inter-War Stripped Classical style. It was an original feature of the Sydney Harbour Bridge construction and part of the electrification of the Sydney suburban railway network.

    1. Which is the same age as the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Thanks. The sun setting behind the bridge produces the wonderful colours.

  7. Neat shot. I love the Palm Tree and if you look closely the way the fence zig-zags as well. Nice building.
