2-4 Sir John Young Crescent, Woolloomooloo. Sydney, New South Wales

This most unusual row of three storey terraces is in a prominent but in the most unfortunate position.  Set on arguably Sydney’s busiest junction, wedged between the Eastern distributor, entrance to the Cross City Tunnel Northbound and Cahill Expressway and the overpass of the Bondi railway line (which presumably cuts through what may have been an extended streetscape at some stage).  It is extremely difficult to photograph !

Bridget Goggs Terrace: Brisbane Street, Ipswich. Queensland (demolished 1936)

Built in 1858 by Matthew Goggs, this row of five single storey brick terraces with attic level is one of the few built in a Queensland provincial city.  The photo was taken just prior to its demolition in 1936, however even then the row was showing its age.  In the 1860s Ipswich, a booming mining town, rivaled penal Brisbane in terms of importance and many grand homes and terraces anticipated its further growth.  However history shows that Brisbane became the colony’s capital, quickly outgrew and absorbed Ipswich in its rapidly expanding western suburbs.
