50s Annandale: A Short Walk

Marghanita da Cruz will present a virtual tour of 1850s and 1950s Annandale. In the 1850s, a new Train line passed through the Annandale Estate and William Stanley Jevons came to live at Annangrove Cottage on the Parramatta Road.

Jevons left us descriptions of Annangrove and his walks home to the new Royal Mint where he worked as an Assayer.

Horse Drawn, Steam and electric Trams have all transported passengers along Parramatta Road until the 1950s.

This virtual tour will form the basis of Marghanita's seventh book in a series which presents Annandale's History as Short Walks.

At the end of the talk, there will be an opportunity to inspect the historic cottage and nearby sites.

Date: 2-4pm Saturday 29 April 2017
Location: Tetch Gallery, Annangrove Cottage, 245 Parramatta Road Annandale
