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)!

They've redone the kitchen of Number 80? But where did the grime go, Ben? Where did the grime go?

I used to think that Christine phoned us rather than just walking over because she was too scared of our kitchen.

LOL - she wouldn't have been the only one. She may also have been concerned about getting saturated in a water fight.
