I have changed my mind since uploading my last rephotograph of this one. I think it's a mislabelled photograph of Mt. Ainslie looking up Anzac Parade. If you superimpose this photo on the original the shape of the mountain matches very closely.
Mercure Canberra , Braddon, from Ainslie Avenue. The sign still says Olims from the previous owners. The westbound lane of Ainslie Avenue is non-existent in Mildenhall's original photo.
I bet the traffic wasn't quite so heavy when Mr. Mildenhall stood in the middle of Elouera Street with his back to the traffic to take the original photograph. Coggan's Bakery is now Floressence (rhymes with Fluorescence) Health Spa.
Canberra Korean Uniting Church with the lead light window recently repaired. It looks like the concrete kerb is original.
To get this from the right perspective you have to stand in Coranderrk Street near the end of the traffic island. I think I'm slightly too far to the left - a problem with using a compact camera with no view finder on a bright day.
Because of the tree growth I had to go to the corner of Canberra Avenue and Queen Victoria Terrace in front of the Croquet Greens. Needless to say its a bit leafier around West Block these days :)
Photographer Andrew Sikorski recreated this shot in the circular drive of Gorman House Arts Centre. Director Joseph Falsone is standing in for Mildenhall.
Re-photo is taken in portrait rather than landscape. Note the difference in size of the trees and hedges.
... and this is the right hand one. It's anybody's guess which one Mr. Mildenhall photographed. I would need a cherry picker to rephotograph it from the same angle.
The Bank no longer exists, trees have grown and there are buses coming and going at the busy bus interchange. The Canberra Photographic Society (founded 1945) is taking part in this cultural and photographic exercise as a contribution to the Centenary of Canberra.

Members of the Canberra Photographic Society (founded in 1945) are taking part in this project as a contribution to the Centenary of Canberra. It is also an interesting photographic challenge, to work backwards from a photograph. We are also making modern photographs of Canberra.
