Canberra Fifty Years Ago

| | Comments (1)

Fifty-one years ago this weekend the parental type people came down to Canberra to celebrate the opening of the Canberra Youth Hostel.

Mum took two photos up Black Mountain - one from the top, and one from the lookout part way up.  Unfortunately we'll be busy on the weekend so I won't be able to get the fifty-one year recreation, so you'll have to make do with my photos from 2016.

From part way up..

Canberra from Black Mountain, August 1968

Canberra from Black Mountain, December 2016

At the top

I love how Parkes Way just isn't there in 1968, and there seems to be a lot more trees around now..

Trip down memory lane. More trees and a lot more buildings.
