Susannah Place, Sydney

Larger version

Susannah Place Museum (also here) is a row of four working-class terraces built in 1844. Rather than being "lovingly restored", each room reflects different occupants from the terrace's 150 year history.

Most of these photos are external. There don't seem to be many internal photos online either.

Kitchen of No. 60 (1940s Greek family)
Shop at No. 64

There are two rooms upstairs, two living rooms on the ground floor and a basement, where the kitchen was originally located.

No. 64, at the end, is a corner shop.


Two of the terraces have wooden kitchen additions on the back.

Runnymede, overview and outside

There are a number of different posts from this site, so I thought I should do a quick overview of the house to give the context to avoid having to repeat it each time. Other posts from this site can be found under the tag.

Runnymede is in National Trust property, in New Town, a suburb of Hobart. It was built in the 1830s and has been added to over the years. That room on the right is one such addition.

If I remember correctly, it is the ballroom, and has a side entrance via a bay window (partly hidden here by the tree).
