The Lost City.

Recommended Posts

Comparing old maps, before and after that Queens Rd fire, it must have been the old timber yard buildings, London Rd end, between the railway lines and Queens Rd.

That building disappears after the fire.

Looks like there was a pub on that corner with London Rd,  The Lord Gordon maybe ?

That's it, the building that burnt down  must have been roughly  behind, long gone as the cars appear to be eighties jobs. I assume Queens Rd must be to the left where the white truck is about to emerge ? but it shows a no entry sign to reach Arkwright Street, my memory is it was 2 way. 

I think the City works department was almost opposite,  is that where the new station was built ?

The lightning conductor side merged with the steeplejack side and the rest was sold off and the ceased when John Furse retired. He started the 'jacking ' section when he bought, Mac Donalds steeplejack s near canning circus.
