Subject: RE: Oz Rent Strike Song from 30's
Bob, I'll lend you the album next week.

Back in the 80's one of my colleagues became interested in inner Sydney streets because we had a number of old directories in our library. I think the oldest was from the 20's. He ended up researching these streets in the Picture collection of the State library, selling copies of old views of buildings to current owners/lessees & also wrote a book using these pics & pics he took of the same view. As used copies of this book are selling at $45 & $75 maybe I could cash in my signed copy!
