Now everyone, tell us what is wrong with this image from  the building site on the corner of Bathurst and Sussex Streets in Sydney.

There are at least five correct answers.

Have fun

Well, I'm a Mexican who doesn't know that much about Sydney except that they got rid of their original tram system a very long time ago.

So the metric style road speed limit sign, the relatively modern van and the advertising with a price in dollars leads me to think that it is either not Sydney or that they've photoshopped trams into a more recent picture of a Sydney scene.

The University Senior College banner with "@ 2pm" on it.
The ad immediately above the banner.

The clothes on the people in the foreground seem appropriate. Is that a double-decker bus behind tram 3?

The one that hits me in the eye is the trailer with the advertisement for PIZZAS which except on Movies and TV certainly didnt exist back when the Trams still ran in Sydney.

The 'Senior College Banner' is another as we never had 'Seniors' then like we do today.

That's five. Well done.

Also I doubt that there were mobile bill-boards in Sydney in those days.
