March Theme Day: Passageway

Burnett Lane: 1 of 3.

Today is the first of the month, and so it is the monthly theme day for participants in the City Daily Photo blog community. For this month, the theme is Passageway. I've chosen Burnett Lane in the city. It's an old passageway which links Albert and George streets and has been earmarked for a very fancy $2.5m makeover due for completion in June. I thought I'd give you three glimpses over the next three days of how it is now and then perhaps in June I can take a few more shots and you can see if the council spent their money wisely...

Ooo ... what a good idea! We have a thing in a capital cities at the moment for tarting up laneways. Making them more people friendly. Not even as though there are shops in many of them.

Good idea for a series.

makeover

i like this lane. it reminds of what the city might once have been like long ago

though i do remember an incident, possible from the mid-90s, where a woman was raped in the weekday daytime in this lane near the Albert st end - it boggled the mind to think that something like that could happen in the daytime

Agree that its a very good idea, although I'm sure I will prefer the scruffy original to the tarted up renovation.

Different. Hope they include street art in the makeover.
Cheers.
