Here are some war time pics compared with pics of the same areas today, mainly in Darwin CBD[IMG][IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
Not quite the same angle but you can see the building in the background of the wartime photo[IMG][/IMG]
Wow, I assume they took it down after the war. Interesting.
The bank of New South Wales building ( now Westpac) is the same building as the one in the wartime pic
The Arches in the left of the old pic are still there, though the building itself was destroyed. This pic was taken when they were stripping and repainting them and filled in shrapnel marks could bee seen!!
