CityRail: a picture tells a thousand lies

Sydneysiders will be familiar with the Devonshire St tunnel that links Central Station to Railway Square. You’ve probably noticed the murals CityRail placed along the walls of this tunnel in 2006 to celebrate the current Central Station building’s 100th anniversary.

If you pass by this odd assortment of pictures twice a day, as I do, they they become mental furniture. But if you take a closer look at them, you will notice they are not a random selection of current and historical photos of CityRail facilities and staff. They are, in fact, carefully chosen and fiendishly clever propaganda.

This gallery shows you the hidden (and not so hidden) messages behind these pictures.
