Five Ways (2) - Broughton Street
Just before entering FW proper which is ringed with pedestrian crossings
As I intimated yesterday, Five Ways is the tiniest of little round-abouts. Glenmore Road runs into it from the west and out from the east, accounting for two of the ways. Broughton Street runs across and down the ridge from the south-east heading toward the city. Here the Royal Hotel built in 1880 is on the right.
Looking back up Broughton Street
This last shot gives a good idea of the steep narrow streets that comprise Paddington and which run down the escarpment to the harbour. The escarpment provides excellent views of the waters of the harbour in between wrought iron terraces and the feathery leaves of jacaranda trees. It is a contining thrill to hear the deep horn of the visiting cruise ships as they traverse the harbour to dock at the OPT.
