Don't you just love it, when you can date a photo to the year ;-)

Hi.  Is Ice House Street the one we can see on the left hand side of this photo? A building in the distance looks as if it could be the one on the right in my mystery building site photo.




Hi there,

The photographer should be standing at the corner of Pedder Street & Des Voeux Road Central, west bound.

Ice House Street is the street behind the triangular building, ie, the Alexandra House.

Best Regards,


Here is a 1961 map to give some sense of direction.

The building site as seen: http://gwulo.com/node/8908

is the eastern (right) section of Alexandra House.

Thanks moddsey,  it makes more sense to me now,  I love maps and aerial views!
