Some photos taken at Barangaroo a new public recreation area on Sydney’s foreshore near The Rocks

Here are a few of many photos taken a couple days on my first visit to a recently completed  new public park in Sydney minutes from the CBD.  The area was  known as “The Hungry Mile”  during The Great Depression as men had to queue up at the crack of dawn hoping to be picked for jobs on the docks.
