... a souvenir of Sydney.
We were soon back on the street and headed toward the down town. The start of the down town section was marked by a beautiful building that housed the Bank of Montreal. The town was populated with local businesses. Unlike our home town where there are lots of chain stores that make parts of the town looked like similar parts of many other towns, the down town section of Sydney was full of local mom and pop establishments that ...
