Mystery Photo VII - Narrow Lane


Time for the first Mystery Photo of 2010. Somewhere in Newtown is this faded sign - where exactly ?

  1. Australia St, on corner next to the outboard engine place?

  2. Brown street, lower end just down from the mechanic?

  3. Yay!

    And quite an appropriate sign it is too, it's a mighty small lane. I wonder what its history is?

  4. Indeed. It also serves as access to the Mayor's garage - and really should be one-way; especially the angled bit that joins Linthorpe Street.

    There's a little bit of information here:

  5. Also check out the old map here which shows it didn't exist in 1890, and only partially existed in 1895.
