Sydney University Main Quadrangle





A beautiful day yesterday afternoon on the lawn in the main quadrangle.

The buildings surrounding the main quad was completed over many stages.
Edmund Blacket, Colonial Architect, started it in 1854, comprised the Great Hall and East range, which were built between 1854 and 1862.

Finally the uni architect,Professor Leslie Wilkinson, designed the North and North-west wings in harmony with the existing stonework in the Tudor Gothic style. The work carried out on the South-west range between 1921 and 1926.

One of my favourite places in Sydney.
