A final view of the Sydney skyline from Sydney Tower circa 1987.
St. Mary’s Cathedral is a Sydney landmark. Built to last, this 106 meter long sandstone Gothic Revival–style cathedral was begun in 1868, consecrated in 1905 and substantially finished in 1928, though the massive, 75 meter high spires weren’t added until 2000 (this image from Sydney Tower was circa 1987).
Sydney Tower is Sydney’s tallest structure and the second tallest observation tower in the Southern Hemisphere. The name Sydney Tower has become common in daily usage, however the tower has been known as the Sydney Tower Eye and other names. Opened to the public in 1981, the tower at 1,014 feet tall, is Sydney’s major tourist attraction. Images circa 1987.
