The Rocks - Sydney Harbour B&B

This is all that remains of a group of working man's terraces built in 1914 by the State Government. They now function as a Bed & Breakfast. As can be seen from the two older images (from SHFA), the area immediately in front of these terraces has changed markedly from the time of their construction. The land was graded down (carved out!) extensively when the approaches to the Sydney Harbour Bridge were constructed from 1928-1932, leaving just a narrow precipitous walkway. The remaining three of the original six terraces, all operate as the one accommodation.

Its great to see the now and then shots. It is a good location for a B&B.
