'50s Annandale: A Short Walk

50s Annandale A Short Walk  Marghanita da Cruz with photograph of tram

In the 1850s WS Jevons came to Sydney to work as an Assayer at the new Mint. Jevons and his colleague came to live at Annangrove in Annandale. Jevons wrote numerous letters to his family describing his life in Sydney and his walks and trips from Annangrove Cottage.

50s Annandale: A Short Walk is the seventh book in the series. It takes you on a walk through Annandale of the 1850s and 1950s.

In the 1950s, Sydney's Tram network was shut down. This saw the end of Tram services through Annandale, along the Crescent, Booth Street and Parramatta Road.

Marghanita presented 50s Annandale as a virtual walk in April 2017. At the end of April 2017, Marghanita was pre-selected as the Greens lead candidate for Councillor of the Leichhardt Ward of the Inner West Council.

On 9 September 2017, Marghanita da Cruz was elected to the Inner West Council.
