Stormtroopers in Sydney


You know it will not be an ordinary day when there are Imperial Stormtroopers patrolling Sydney’s Martin Place (my favourite location for street photography). And once I’ve spotted Emperor’s Royal Guard in their distinct red tunics and helmets I knew there is trouble brewing about. The Force will be UNLEASHED!

The mint


Built between 1811 and 1816 as the southern end of the Sydney Hospital it became a mint in 1854 when gold was discovered in New South Wales. It was the first Royal Mint outside of England. It operated as mint until 1926.

Today it is an interesting museum and the building itself is part of Historic Trust.
