This photo shows the Queen Adelaide Reservoir before it was drained and turned into Sam Redfern Green. The "Queen Addy Rezzy", as it was known, is the brown area in the middle of the picture. The other reservoir is the one on Joel Lane.

Thanks very much , Tracey :)
A more recent aerial photo of Sam Redfern Green and the surrounding area.
I think it looks much nicer as the Village Green.
