The Young Ones Look Down On Their Elders

Old and new buildings are juxtaposed against each other, and against a blue sky in the sunshine. On the left is the Queen Victoria Building with its sandstone walls and sculptures and its green copper domes, overlaid on the blue exterior of a tall new building with a pink spire, pink trim, and blue-edged blocks of dark windows. To the right of this, almost as tall and almost touching it, is a grey and aqua green facade surmounted by a narrow block of windows and flat green wall, echoing the pink spire; and down low, against this building, stands the sandstone clock tower of the Sydney Town Hall, dwarfed by its modern neighbours.
