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

Tunnel Midpoint Annandale (formerly Camperdown)

"WestConnex would like to correct some misinformation about the potential Camperdown mid-tunnel construction site:
.The midpoint tunnel site at Camperdown will require part of the 'triangle area' bordered by Parramatta Road, Pyrmont Bridge Road and Mallet Street in Camperdown [ACTUALLY ANNANDALE since 1995]
.Construction traffic will not use Booth Street
.Parramatta Road will be our key traffic route. Traffic will enter the site via Parramatta Road and exit near the corner of Parramatta Road and Pyrmont Bridge Road
.Surface construction hours will be standard construction hours (consistent with Stage 1 and Stage 2 of WestConnex) which are 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays"...more
