Although I was a little uncertain at first, I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Susannah Place Museum in The Rocks district of inner Sydney. we went there on the advice of our daughter who was with us on this holiday. A teaching colleague of hers had previously been there and had recommended a visit.

We went on an hour long guided tour of these old historic terrace houses and shop. The houses were generally occupied from 1844 until relatively recently, one of them until only a few yars ago.

The houses are furnished and decorated in keeping with various eras in the life of this building. Some of the facilities, like the outdoor laundry tub and water heating fireplace and copper tub shown above, seem primitive when compared with what we have today.
