Paddington is an inner-city suburb, which started as very mixed socially. Nowadays, there are few terraces available for less than 1.5 million. Even the unrenovated ones sell quickly and fetch a pretty penny.
However, its past has not been completely obliterated! I discovered a chook pen, not all that far from where I live.
And somewhere there is a pigeon loft as I often see them wheeling up and down the escarpment. I must try to pinpoint them over time, and then track the loft down. Then all I would need is someone who keeps greyhounds in his backyard. The working-man's trifecta of pursuits from between the wars. My paternal grandfather did not keep chooks, but he did keep greyhounds and pigeons.
My guess is 1850 (give or take) for the top terrace - possibly built for a working-man. For the terrace below, I would estimate 1885 - and built for a merchant. Quite different, aren't they? They are two streets apart. The merchant's terrace might fetch between 3 and 4 million, I would hazard a guess.
