How old is this picture?

Ian Lind writes today about an old photo of the capitol, asking "what's wrong with this picture?" He was referring to a photo of the State Capitol before the walking promenade was built connecting Richards and Punchbowl streets.

The same is true of the photo of the State Capitol that we use on this blog. I noticed a while back that the promenade looked "different", and now, thanks to Ian's post, I realize that it is probably what used to be a portion of Hotel Street. Also, there's something else wrong. Notice that there is no water element surrounding the building.

I wonder how old this picture is? Time for a new photo, I guess.
