The beautiful tiles in the disused train tunnels under St James Station #Sydney are used to replace broken tiles in the public area. The tiles are original and were set in place during the 1920s. What happens when these run out? 😔 #SydneyisOpen #history #Sydneyhistory #sydneylocal #ozhist

A bunker under St James station, one of many disused tunnels, some of which were used as air raid shelters during #WW2. Next to us we heard the rumble of the trains. Had a fantastic time exploring #Sydney's subterranean sights today on a photoshoot with @sydlivmus, thanks @ceeceethatsme! You can explore it too during Sydney Open this November #SydneyisOpen #OzHst #ozhist #history #Sydneyhistory
