Photos - Secrets - Streets (continued)

Ryde

What address are you staying at in Ryde?
I don't know the house number.
Well, the name of the street?
Yes.


Silverwater

A different view of Silverwater Road – from underneath


Telopea

Telopea problem solved: how to get from Robert Street to Robert Street. Actually, the signs are correct, but how can that be?


Tregear

The old road into Tregear Reserve heads off into the distance for half a kilometre, so I know that it must be taking me to something significant.

Tregear

Of course, I could be wrong.

Turrella

The sign reads: "Martin St Turrella. A forgotten street. It existed before the East Hills rail line. Rockdale Municipal Council and local residents remember and preserve it."


Wahroonga

The majority of Sydney street names don't begin with CLW. Wahroonga is special.


Wakeley

Perhaps uniquely, three streets run parallel with only narrow grass strips separating them: Leicester Street (foreground), Canley Vale Road (middle) and Beckhaus Street (rear). The first of the three-pronged attack, Leicester Street, is in Wakeley; Beckhaus Street is in St Johns Park; Canley Vale Road can’t make up its mind.


Waverley

In an unnamed lane off O’Dowd Street, Waverley, is a relic of decades ago. In the era before computer games, young children played hopscotch on squares chalked on the pavement. This one has survived because it was painted.


Westmead

So you've moved to Westmead. How's your street?
Yes
