Redfern Street, Redfern (corner of Regent Street), circa 1909

The Redfern Post Office tower features prominently in this view taken in the mid-afternoon. A heavily-laden tram is heading to La Perouse via Botany. Note the "Christmas tree" telephone poles, the early electric street light, and the variety of street level advertising designed to catch the pedestrian's eye.

Around the time this photo was taken the suburb hosted many businesses established by migrants from Syria such as George Dan, Stanton and Aziz Melick and Anthony and Simon Coorey.
