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.

"Ground survey and utilities investigations will be carried out in Annandale/Camperdown on the southern side of Pyrmont Bridge Road, between Gordon Street and Mallett Street, and in Bignell Lane from 14 March to 17 March 2017, weather permitting."..www.westconnex.com.au/sites/default/files/170306_N83_Utilities%20investigations_%20Annandale%20Camperdown.pdf
"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

Schubert's songs are almost unparalleled in their ability to speak very personally to the listener. Whilst the Austrian composer created over 500 songs in his short lifetime, a group of them based on core themes stand out amongst the very finest songs ever written.
"The Wanderer" tells not only of the physical journeys of a man, but also his travels through life and the questions which surround him.
Koen van Stade (tenor) and Amanda Miller (piano) present a mesmerising selection of this and other songs, all of which strike nerves within us all in their sense of solitude within our enormous world.

"The recent removal of the WestCONnex Camperdown interchange means that the traffic, air quality, noise and financial projections for the New M5 are now wrong. Yet the Baird government has announced plans to charge ahead with starting tunnelling works at the St Peters Interchange - even though no one now knows what the impact of this part of the tollway or the interchange itself will be.."

"19 December 2016 Geotechnical investigations – Annandale
Work is underway on WestConnex, which involves widening and extending the M4 motorway, duplicating the M5 motorway and joining the M4 and M5 to create a free-flowing motorway network.
Planning continues for the proposed M4-M5 Link – the third stage of the WestConnex project linking the M4 at Haberfield to the M5 at St Peters via underground tunnels. For more information, visit westconnex.com.au/M4-M5Link
Geotechnical investigations will be undertaken in White's Creek Lane, Annandale, from Wednesday 4 January 2017.
The work at this location is expected to take up to three weeks to complete, weather permitting. " - 161219_N58_Geotechnical%20investigations%20notification_Annandale.pdf

The samples are analysed to help us understand the ground conditions in the area, including the water table, and help inform the project design, method of construction and the Environmental Impact Statement." - 161222_Geotechnical%20investigations%20postcard.pdf
