From this walkway, with the Wlliam Street tunnel beneath me, with the Cross-City Tunnel beneath me, with New South Head Road beneath me, and with the Eastern Suburbs railway beneath me, I stand and gaze up the embankment that is part of Paddington. Permit me to point out two parts of the landscape.
In the centre mid-ground there is a mass of trees, just before that high-rise on the horizon. This is the wooded part of Trumper Park that I showed you extensively earlier this year. Immediately 'beneath' this tree-mass, in a series of manicured sporting fields. These are the sporting fields of Sydney Grammar School, known as 'Weigal'. These fields used to be the location of two Sydney landmarks of my youth: White City, and The Stadium. White City was a series of tennis courts where many of the Australian tennis triumphs of the '50s occurred. The Stadium was a 'structure'- in reality a tin shed - where many boxing matches occurred and music concerts were staged. The Beatles performed at The Stadium, as did Peter, Paul & Mary.
Yes, if you were wondering, these shots were taken on different days, using different cameras.
