Hostels Photos

Here are some photos from the Terraces reunion. Things have changed a bit in 20 years, but not that much. Thanks very much to the current residents at The Terraces for being so kind as to let us see how things look now.

Note the phone hole is gone, and for the record I was never part of the group who climbed through to next door in the middle of the night to watch TV. The kitchens have much more storage space than when we lived there, and all the bathrooms have been refurbished. The shade cloth out the back of 64-66 is great.

Magpie Season

Spring has arrived. I was swooped in Leichhardt this morning while cycling to work.

Back to Barneys

On Sunday it was the 150th anniversary of St Barnabas Broadway. The City of Sydney were kind enough to donate the use of City Recital Hall (in Angel Place) on Sunday for a get together of past and present Barneys members.

While it was great to see so many people we haven't seen for years, it was also inspiring to hear about the new church building.

There were various reunions over the weekend. I went to a reunion for the St Barnabas Terraces ("Hostels" in my day). Some things are just as they were 20 years ago (yes it really is that long), like the vines between #76 and #78, while some things are new and improved (e.g. kitchens in #80)!
