Redfern Visions 24: East Redfern 2 – nature 2

I can’t help reflecting on how pleasant the inner city area now is compared with fifty years ago when I used to frequent it as a school boy. Then there was a constant pall of smoke and many indescribable smells, and Nature was pretty much excluded, except for the parks, such as Moore Park, and even they were scruffy compared to today.

Let’s look at the South Dowling Street edge of East Redfern to give a context for the three other pictures, all taken from much the same spot at the same time of day – morning.
