Dulwich Hill, circa 1900

Looking down Marrickville Road from New Canterbury Road. The balconies and awnings, supported by nicely detailed posts, serve to visually demarcate the pedestrian realm from the roadway, an effect lost when cantilevered awnings replaced the older structures after World War I. Happily, these details survived in a few places and some have even been recreated in recent years. Note the elegant gas street light.

The tram network provided excellent service from the city centre even to a developing suburb like Dulwich Hill, which, at a whole nine kilometres from the city, was very much on its outskirts.
