Sydney sandstone

Another Sydney trip.........taking photos (while stopped in traffic) of the sandstone buildings in College and Macquarie Streets in the city.....

The picture below is taken in the suburb of Randwick.  It is part of the Prince of Wales Hospital. This building opened in 1858 and was originally the Asylum for Destitute Children.  I have often walked past it and wondered about the children who lived here and what their lives were like.  We were back here recently for my grandson, who has a disability, to visit his doctors at the Children's Hospital on the same site.
