Redfern visions 34: Little Eveleigh Street 2

Little Eveleigh Street has changed little since M and I lived there 17 years ago, though there have been quite a few changes in the area – more on that later. It was then, and is now, a surprising oasis in deepest Redfern/Darlington. It also had a strong community feel. On this little vacant lot there were regularly neighbourhood barbecues.

That was diagonally opposite where we were living, the house with the green roof in the next picture…

The little attic window was put in after we left. It was a very small house, but the backyard was surprisingly big.

Not far to the west of our house Little Eveleigh Street fed into Wilson Street, which runs up to Newtown. Across the road at the end of the street a lane led down to Lawson Street. The house in the next picture fronts onto Little Eveleigh.  Did you ever see such ivy?

All these were taken in early morning, conditions a bit hazy…
