Since I have been paddling and photographing Lake Burley Griffin I have started to research the history of the lake – the conception, the alternative designs, its construction, the surrounding landmarks that makes it what it is today. The lake has a magnificent history, and I would like you to load any old photos of it during its construction phase, the building of Scrivener Dam, Black Mountain Tower, Old Parliament House, the Carillion, Commonwealth Avenue Bridge (new or old), King’s Avenue Bridge, the Old Canberra Hospital, the original Racecourse which was flooded when the lake was filled, Spring Bank Island Jetty, Regatta Point, the High Court, National library, New Parliament House or anything else that you may see fit.
I would love to see any old photos and then revisit the site – how has the landscape changed? Will we even recognise what once was there?
