Today I decided to follow up on Surry Hills: Looking for Jacob 11: Found!, which you should consult to make complete sense of this post. I took a walk over Lots 6 and 7, knowing there wouldn’t be much on the ground. But first a Google Earth image again:
I walked up Wentworth Avenue, around the blocks from Hunt Street back up Commonwealth (formerly Macquarie) Street, down Goulburn, and into Foy Lane.
This is what I saw.
That is the Elizabeth Street frontage as it is now.
“Market Lane” has changed a bit! Wentworth Avenue.
A Sydney landmark for many years, this appears to be slap on part of Lot 6.
