The Rocks, Suez Canal, sculpture

This is one of the life-size caricatures located in a narrow laneway known as Suez Canal, at The Rocks. Constructed in the late 19th century, this laneway runs between George Street and Harrington Street, with the name supposedly a pun on "sewers canal". These backlit sculptures glow at night and depict the people who frequented the area in the late 19th century who were involved in prostitution, slavery and opium.

  4. This is unusual and also really interesting. Thanks for sharing and for linking up with #MySundaySnapshot.

  5. Nice one, Jim. I have visited the area and always like to go back when in Sydney. Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.
