Reussdale, Bridge Road, Glebe


Built in the mid 1860s by Francis Reuss, this once-gracious Victorian mansion
undergoing restoration is one of the joys of my new walk to work. Hewit Avenue (in reality more like a lane)runs along the western boundary of the block on which Reussdale and The Abbey are sited. Enveloped by massive trees, I shall endeavour a dappled mid-morning shot, to better showcase the charms of dereliction.

Looks like a nice place for exploring. I like pictures of urban decay.

I love these pictures! They are beautifully rustic. They remind me of some shots a friend took of a ghost town, among numerous other 'decaying' places.

I love this house, your new walk to work looks interesting. Our urban decay is often less glamorous than this.

You'll love Glebe with all its crumbling bits ... and that marvelous antique shop full of old fountains and things. It's going to be fun watching what you make of it all.

I agree with Joan Elizabeth. If this is a taste of what we have to look forward to as you explore your new surroundings we are all in for a great deal of viewing delight.

Had my eye on this place for the future too. Lovely shots.

I believe The Abbey was once the Presbyterian Church and this house The Manse. At least so I remember being told.

I have a piece on Glebe in next month's South Sydney Herald. I think you'll enjoy it.
