Georgian Hobart

Just enjoyed  few days in Hobart. If you want to see what Sydney once looked like, go to the Hobart waterfront and squint. Blot out the few tall buildings, lengthen the height of the ship's masts and draw in a couple of horses and carts for good measure.  It's not all like this, but there is enough to make anyone jealous. Compare Hobart's waterside warehouses with any old photograph of Sydney's East Circular Quay taken around the 1870s - buildings that were there before the buildings that were replaced by the buildings that are there today.
