Above - Lined with pavement plantings of immature chestnut trees, the 'rue' end of Glenmore Road, abuts Oxford Street opposite the sandstone wall surrounding Victoria Barracks. Winding narrowly among 1840s workmen cottages and the three-storey, double-fronted terraces of the emerging mercantile class, ‘The Intersection’ arouses faux-European sensibilities, whilst demanding genuine Champs-Elysees designer prices. This is definitely not a ‘clone-town’ neighbourhood. Alannah Hill is directly across the road.
Below – Stream Way is the shortest of back alleys running adjacent to William Street, the main thoroughfare from the Town Hall up the hill to Kings Cross. The stream trickled down from the cliffs of Darlinghurst to the waters of Wooloomooloo Bay. This entrancing wall-scape was buckled and warped by a fire belching out from the cellar of ‘The William’ an early opener at the rear of The Australian Museum.
