Bombs and suburbs
The Sydney suburb of Woollahra is well-known for its leafy, quiet streets. It must have been a change of pace in 1942, when bombs began falling. The other day I was strolling along Fletcher Street and found the following embedment at the corner with Small Street.
The council history is compelling in its dryness. For my family’s part, Mum & her mother were delighted that the rich folk fled from the harbour to the apparent safety of the Blue Mountains, the inland west. They lived out the war in a lovely 2-bedroom unit at Rose Bay.
