This page will explore the transformation of Western Creek where it flowed through what is now Rosalie Village and its surrounds. I’ve not managed to write anything yet, but I am delighted to share a contribution by Steven Cowley, which tells of some childhood memories of exploding drains in Herbert Street, among other things. The memories are those of Steven’s friend Rhonda, who grew up in Herbert Street in the 1970s. The page is called Guppies & geysers: memories of playing around and under Paddington in the 1970s. Enjoy!

There will be more to come, but I wouldn’t suggest holding your breath for it. You are welcome, however, to share your own insights in the comments below or in the Forum, or by sending me a message.
