The Last Post Magazine

The much respected, and loved by those in uniform, The Last Post will feature articles about early Sydney’s built environment within the context of The Sandstone Trilogy.  Also podcasts will be done on the same theme. Here’s the first one dealing mainly with the early/primitive period and Governor Macquarie’s imprint.  For those passionate about our built past, listen in and enjoy             http://thelastpostmagazine.com/category/interviews/
