old photo of Sydney Town Hall

When you think of Sydney landmarks, the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House spring first to one’s mind.  But before those were built, Sydney’s Town Hall stood out proudly as being our most iconic Sydney building for many years.  The Town Hall was officially opened in 1880.  Who would have thought the Balmain Bowling Club is the same age as Sydney’s Town Hall.
