Sydney in 1931

Today's photo is an aerial view taken above Sydney Terminal with the platforms of Central Electric on the left hand side added five years previously. Redfern is the next station further along.

This was still a year before the Harbour Bridge was opened, and 25 years before the city underground loop via Circular Quay was opened. More details of the electrification of Sydney's railways are contained in our book Railway Electrification in Australia and New Zealand available in our online shop.
