Deep in the heart of Wooloomooloo lies a town centre, where the decaying tenements of the early 1970s were demolished. Through roads have been blocked off, parks and playgrounds take their place. It is low-rise all packed together, with a large number of unemployed, indigent, and indigenous inhabitants.
There are a number of murals in the area, mostly with indigenous motifs, which were restored by the City Of Sydney during 2010. Once again, for residents of Sydney, I have included the ubiquitous Sydney Tower in the post to enable you to orient yourself. One of the signs says 'Dowling Street'. I was standing in Sydney Place to take the photograph of the mid-nineteenth century working man's cottage.
