The photo appearing last week, January 1933 Station between Newcastle and Sydney was taken near Brooklyn railway station & it is not far at all . . . from Berowra that is!
A current photo, above, taken approximately from the same position shows clearly there have been changes over the past 70 years but the building (refurbished) on the right and the tree & the memorial seem to set the scene.The building up at the top of the 1933 photo was I am told an orphanage & the half obscured sign mentions the Patonga ferry. While the sign in the centre of the photo points to Brooklyn Park which even today is still a good walk back towards the highway.
