Photos - Secrets - Streets (continued)
Hassall Grove claims Sydney's shortest street - this is the whole of Derek Place, Hassall Grove.
How, then, can Narwee claim a shorter one? (See Narwee)
And Darlinghurst is in the claims business too.
Another mystery: This is not a traffic jam in the
rush hour, but four rows of parked cars in quiet time in Homebush
West. Miniature Tavistock Road ends at a fence where the photographer
was standing. How does the “P” owner get his car out?
How do any of them get out?
Like a giant slippery-dip or lava from a recent volcanic eruption, King Georges Road flows
through the south-western suburbs. This major traffic artery disturbs the otherwise docile Hurstville Grove.
You can only see it like this if you’re walking before 6am on a Sunday.
I assist the police whenever possible. At the
bottom of Ingram Street, Kensington, you can book every driver for
two offences, constable: not observe "no entry" sign and drive contrary
to "one way" sign. There's no other way to get into this dead-end
Furthermore, constable, parallel Baker Street
is an ideal place to order motorists to pull over.
Is there any other example of this footpath
pattern in Sydney? Yes, there are hundreds of them - see them
every four metres on both sides of Anzac Parade through the
Kensington shopping centre.
The narrow Middlemiss Street, next to the overhead rail approach to North Sydney station
And the name of your lane?
It's Nott Lane.
Well, the name of your street, avenue or whatever.
Check your street directory for Lovett Bay, and
you will see there's a roundabout on the main drag, Sturdee Lane.

Maianbar is a tiny, hidden suburb surrounded by
the Royal National Park, the world’s second-oldest national
park, declared as such in 1879.
Our car waits patiently while we take this photo for
you of Pacific Crescent, Maianbar’s main shopping street.
Sydney's most dangerous bend must be on Maianbar Road, Maianbar.
