From the skies
In 1943 aircraft flew at 2600 metres over Sydney to take, for the first time, a series of photographs to aid road planning. A selection of the unique photographs are now unveiled, along with their modern day equivalents. Each of the photographs tell of suburbs that no longer exist, landmarks in waiting, unimaginable urban growth to come and a brewing battle between nature and those that planned to dominate it. Never before shown to the public, they give an unprecedented insight into what Sydney was like at the height of World War II and what it has become today.
