Brown Bear Lane

The story of turning a 100-year-old photograph into a large-scale mural is by University of Sydney graduate Dr Pierre Mol, reproducing an original black and white photograph of Brown Bear Lane, which was named after The Brown Bear, an infamous pub. An educational piece taht represents the eerie fashion of the times, the beginning of The Rocks in 1901. Details of the photo had been posterised through a scanning process to reduce the many shades of grey, which was then painted on the side of the building through various projections and traced unto the wall. Brown Bear Lane was eventually known as Little Essex Street.
