One of the entrances to St James Station in Sydney, possibly not much changed from when my parents started dating over 60 years ago (they met on a blind date at Museum Station). Being on the platform is like stepping back in time – the old-style advertisements, the tiles so reminiscent of a time long gone, except in memory. And Chateau Tanunda Brandy? It’s been around since 1880 … a little longer than St James Station, and quite a bit longer than my mum and dad!

Ah I remember it well. I used to work up Oxford Street for a year or so and Museum Station was the nearest to work. It is also not far from the War Memorial. I used the underground system many years working in Sydney – the only station that I only used a couple of times was Wynyard. Town Hall was my favourite. All the stations had tiles but each one used a different colour so it was easy to recognise where you were as soon as you started into the station. Now you have started me down memory lane …..

Thanks Aunty Jan. I love to hear stories of years gone by … so if you ever feel like writing down your wanderings I’d love to read them.
