Perth Skyline Panoramic Picture Framed, Australia
This panoramic photograph of Perth was taken by Christopher Gjevre. Featured is downtown Perth, Western Australia's capital city, as seen looking across the Swan River. It's a vibrant, modern city that was claimed by England in 1829. The colony's difficulties included a shortage of labor, so the British government sent convicts to assist with development. The 741-foot Central Park Tower with its brightly lit roof structure is centered in the panorama and is Perth's tallest building. To its right is the 52-story Bankwest Tower. Further to the right is the Bell Tower, which is identifiable in the photograph as the tall, thin structure beside the ferry docks.
