This is the second in a series of blog posts about the building of a new dome on Sydney Observatory's heritage site. In my previous post I described why a new building was being constructed and who funded the project.
I visited Old Perth Observatory, located in King’s Park on Mt Eliza, a fabulous site with park and river views, in November 2011. The site is under the custodianship of the National Trust of Western Australia and the purpose of my visit was to see what remained of the Old Perth Observatory and look for evidence of the Astrographic Catalogue work as part of broader doctoral research for The University of Sydney Museum Studies Department.
