Into the Archives - Marrickville
In a modern, fast-paced, internet-focused age the world around us has become a fleeting folly. However, for one young man, the history of Sydney has never been more important to focus on & highlight to the broader community.
Nathan Mete's love for history led him to start the page Retro_sydney, which has now amassed an incredible number of followers - 101,000 at last check.
While the images Nathan posts Retro_Sydney are stunning to look at, it’s the stories behind the pictures that makes them oh-so magical. Whether it’s a glimpse at a major transformation of an iconic place. A nostalgic rush for a time passed by. Or simply keeping someone's memory alive, photographs are a truly unique form of expression.
Neighbourhood Media is excited to have Nathan contribute to this month's issue with a selection of photographs. So, without any further ado let’s check out what he’s found for us this time:
