1930s Annandale: A Short Walk is the fifth book in a series.
Annandale is a small inner city suburb of Sydney. It is squeezed between a bay of Sydney Harbour and Parramatta Road.
In the 1930s Annandale's pubs had Art Deco makeovers and its factories were producing radios, pianos, lollies, jams, saws and gun sights.
Amy Hudson started playing cricket in Trafalgar Street and went on to play for Australia.
This book also covers 1830s, when Annandale was the estate of the second generation of Johnstones in the expanding colony of New South Wales. Then, Parramatta Road was the High Road to Parramatta.
Marghanita da Cruz has been recording an Anecdotal History of Annandale since 1998.
Marghanita guided this walk as part of the Annandale Heritage Festival in April 2015.
