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
Price: $15/$10 Concession
Bookings & Enquiries: 0414-869202, Email: marghanita@ramin.com.au

Join the Campaign against the Westconnex White Elephant

Subject: Follow up from Badu Park Rally against WestCONnex
Email: Fri, 2 Dec 2016 12:04:42 +1100
Dear Annandale and Camperdown neighbours,
You are receiving this email after your opposition to WestConnex was noted at the rally in Badu Park on 20th November.
West Connex in our local area will mean

  • 12-15 trucks per hr for up to 24hrs a day, carrying spoil from underground diggings (7 days a week like the St Peters tunnelling site)
  • Smokestacks (n Rozelle and ???) with serious health effects (unfiltered particulate matter from thousands of vehicles using the tunnel)
  • Intense traffic congestion and gridlock in Booth St, Johnston St and Bridge Rd
  • Disruption and delays to public transport
  • Pollution from additional cars and trucks and rat runs through local streets
  • Parking for 350 workers in local streets
  • Land may be acquired for permanent facilities
  • Loss of precious green and open spaces

Many of you are already active in your opposition to the project, but for those of you who want to get more involved, here are some suggestions:

  1. Come to the WestConnex consultation session at Balmain Town Hall and tell WestConnex what you really think:Balmain Town Hall, Thursday 8th December, 6:30pm...
  2. Talk to your neighbours, let them know what is happening
  3. Sign an Open Letter to the NSW Government opposing WestConnex

A Tribute to the Copper Family of Rottingdean, Sussex.

The Copper Family of Rottendean, Sussex have some two or three hundred songs that they have kept alive over a couple of hundred years.The family name has been known in that area since 1593. Sussex is one of the most beautiful counties in England, the upland verdant green downs make fine pasture and the limestone soil is good for growing crops. The Downs also look out over the cliffs and the English Channel, and some of the people from the area ventured to the sea for their livelihoods as sailors and fishermen. In this illustrated tribute Danny, Gael & Margaret will explore the history of the family, their songs & their influence of the folk song revival.

Tetch Gallery invites you all to come and celebrate the opening night of solo artist Edwina Brennan's exhibition 'Pursuit of Paradise'. Refreshments will be provided.
Edwina Brennan is a Sydney-based artist who is best known for her acrylic landscapes that showcase the atmospheric effects of light and colour, as seen in her 2013 exhibition, Moments in Time.
Her latest solo show, Pursuit of Paradise, features similar landscapes as well as dynamic explorations of flora and fauna.

Loaded Dog Folk Club 24th September
Martin Pearson (Vic) + Cathy Rytmeister

Martin is the world's funniest male, long-haired, Victorian, piscean folk singer. Formerly of the act "Martin Pearson", Martin has rose to fame like a dead pigeon in a water tank. Martin plays the fool in B sharp. With support from Cathy who would love to give up her day job and spend more time singing, playing and songwriting but the need to eat is likely to keep her from that decision for a few years yet. She started playing guitar and singing at around the age of 12 and has indulged in music as a hobby ever since, fitting it in around the aforementioned day job and her union and other political activism. She's progressed from teenage years busking with pops songs, through playing Irish tunes with work colleagues and calling dances with a bush band, to finding a happy conjunction of singing and activism with Sydney choirs Solidarity and Ecopella. She also likes to hang out at folk festival singing sessions and has even penned the odd (VERY odd!) parody. Now she's taking her chances in a solo performance at her favourite folk club.

TOHU :: Two premiers by Omer & Sharon Backley-Astrachan

Presented by: FlyBear Studio (Dance)

TOHU by FlyBear Studio presents two exciting new works by independent choreographers Omer & Sharon Backley-Astrachan.

people in art gallery people in art galleryTOHU - a physical journey that explores the universal behavior of humankind. Through the research of cycles and patterns in the universe and the 'natural world', Omer and Sharon Backley-Astrachan strive to make sense of our most enigmatic behaviors.
In a chaotic world, full of passion and art, full of hatred and racism, full of people we love, diversity and beauty, it is truly important to understand our common grounds. Understanding our connections and parallels, as apposed to our disparity and differences, and sooner rather than later.

This year’s sARTorial performance is based around the four sensory elements of light, sound, movement and touch. Drawing on these elements, the artists and designers will collaborate to create one-off wearable pieces using the latest trending design technologies and interactive techniques.
The event ambassador is Erica Gray, an artist who is internationally recognised as one of the leading figures in the field of wearable arts. She has won several awards for her sculptural pieces and artworks both within Australia and New Zealand.

That's what she said...

Presented by: Minor Emergency Theatre Company (NSW)
What makes a woman? Is it as simple as anatomy, or is there a universal experience or core that links all women? Is anatomy irrelevant? Is being a woman a feeling? And how is that different to being a girl? Is femininity intrinsic to womanhood?
In our first production, Minor Emergency Theatre Company asks these questions, both of an audience and of the women we have interviewed to create ‘That's what she said...’. Will these questions be answered? It’s likely they won’t, but our hope is that in asking them, a discussion will ensue. Our play itself is an hour long discussion; the words taken verbatim from women we know. Like the women, the subject matter is diverse, ranging from the struggles of a morning to those of a lifetime, humorous anecdotes to difficult recollections.
Another question: why verbatim? Verbatim puts the words of real people on a stage- not characters, not famous figures, but the people we know, whose words are not always heard as loudly or clearly as they should be. If we have learned anything from the recent new-wave of feminism, it’s that female voices need to be heard more. We’d like make our own offering of female voices: the voices of a five woman theatre company, as well as those of the many women kind enough to speak to us. 7pm Wednesday 14 September - Saturday 17 September 2016 Off-Broadway Festival Hub, 74 Pyrmont Bridge Road, Annandale (more)

Waterfall Art Deco House and Appartment Building

While researching 1940s Annandale: A Short Walk, I came across the 1940s sales plan for part of the site of the original Hunter Baillie Manse. At the time, the house at 80 Johnston Street, was on the market and the owners allowed me to photograph the interior on the eve of its auction.

The house had a few Waterfall Art Deco features such as light coloured and curved bricks, a curved corner window and a curved edged linen cupboard and other more general Art Deco touches in the window and door finishes. The glass pannelled doors all featured the same combination of contrasting glass. - Marghanita da Cruz, 22 July 2016.

Bower Repair Cafe Annandale

people in a hall fixing stuff Saturday 9 July 2016
Annandale Community Centre

Since 2014, the Bower has been operating repair cafe where technicians advise and assist members of the community to fix dodgy small electrical items, rickety tables and chairs, and wobbly bicycles. The Repair Café 'on the road' takes this service out to councils, community centres and festivals. More at http://bower.org.au

They certainly do - they fixed a 1992 Sony Discman, cables on a popcorn maker, hair straighteners and lamps. They thought the electrical bush in the metal and bakelite Sunbeam mixer might be the cause of its woes.
