placefocus #parramatta - progress meets history #urbandesign over #Placemaking ? 2d
  •   oldparramatta The cycling tunnels caused a bit of an upset heritage-wise; on t'other hand, that work also unearthed the sandstone pier and timber girders of the even older "Gaol Bridge" which was preserved in Lennox Bridge's structure! An amazing discovery! (The Gaol Bridge used to lead to Parra's first gaols and first Female Factory in Prince Alfred Park/Square). Most of the sandstone pier ended up being reburied under one of the new tunnels for posterity. #oldparra @placefocus 1d
  •   placefocus Thanks for the info @oldparramatta do you do tours? 1d
  •   oldparramatta I don't do tours @placefocus but I do have a free walking tour app of Parramatta being launched very soon, which I developed for the Dictionary of Sydney. I also have written essays associated with the app for the Dictionary, some of which are already online. The rest of the essays are to be launched when the app is released. If you'd like to check those out, look up "Michaela Ann Cameron" on the Dictionary's "contributors" page. I'll be sure to tag you when I announce on IG that the app is finally available! If wanting a guided tour of Parra, I recommend @parramattaheritagerides :D 1d
