We travel this road to get to the Victoria Market. All these were taken on or from Queen street

This is one of the few really tall buildings

I love the old style of some of the office blocks

Artwork on a building (honestly, this freaks us out a little. We are not modern art afficionados :cry:)

Just off Queen street: a tram shelter. The old-fashioned tram is a tourist tram. You can take it for free around the city. They announce and describe what you are seeing around you. Aimed at tourists :whome: The clock tower is part of Flinders Street Station (train station)

Thanks :whome: Hard to take pics out the car window, but hubby doesn't want to stop every two meters any more :cry::D Can't say as I blame him, but I need to tie my camera to my wrist at soem stage. All this leaning out the window to take pics is a bit risky :P

Oh, and you can now see where the best suit value in town is :o

I had a good giggle at the street name signs. We should post some of the ones in Durban - renamed, crossed out, spraypainted.... :rolleyes::hug:

Thanks for the pics.

Thanks for the pics Polly, seeing them makes it all seem a bit more real! I like the contrasts between the old and new buildings.
