Canberra City in the 80s

24 Jun

Today a friend of mine emailed me these great pictures of my hometown, Canberra,  from the early 1980s. Canberra is Australia’s capital city. For those not familiar with the history, the site of Canberra was selected for the location of the nation’s capital in 1908 as a compromise between rivals Sydney and Melbourne – it’s been considered the ugly cousin ever since. I have no idea where these pics come from, so if you can point me to the photographer, let me know in the comments section and I’ll add attribution.
