10 Inkerman Street


So, Diane was wary of these few streets for good reason. Wary differs from scared, but not much from cautious. Number Ten, Inkerman Street is just off Barkly Street. Yesterday's milk bar is just off Grey Street. The entire area is riddled with short-sheeted streets. Avenues cut off in their prime. One-way roads that dead-end. And Number Ten is good reason for this vehicular mayhem.

Number Ten is the Working-Girls' Co-operative, the place for a smoko and a bit of chit-chat among like-minded professionals. The poster on the left warns of the client who is an 'ugly mug'; the one on the right hightlights 'Overdose Awareness Day'.

The area teems with curb-crawlers during the night hours, their progress made tortuous by the local council to aid the constabulary in their policing.

And, on that note, we leave St Kilda - and Melbourne - and return to sunny Sydney.

Interesting business.

Good for the girls, though, having a place they can get together. It sounds quite civilized.
