Burwood past images


Firstly, my apologies in not advising that I would be away from internet access for a few days, hence the lack of Bytes posts on Saturday and Sunday. Mea culpa. 

On a different note, here are some past images of Burwood NSW, located near my office and only a short distance from where I live. Burwood has featured in the regular series of Sydney Suburbs and it is located about 10 kilometres west of the Sydney CBD. 

So for the rest of the Inner Westies in particular, enjoy a look at past (and in some cases, present) Burwood . . .
