Rowe Street - Remembering Sydney’s slice of Bohemia
Demolished Sydney Talks
‘For almost a century, Rowe Street was Sydney’s little slice of Bohemia – quaint, arty and as near as we could manage to Montmartre. A rendezvous when coffee bars were new, Rowe Street was a place of poets, painters, shoebox theatres and shops selling Paris hats.’ (Valerie Lawson, Sydney Morning Herald, 13–14 October 2001)
Join us as we discuss the history of Rowe Street and the Hotel Australia, their characters and quirks, and explore the social change that led to the demolition of this cherished enclave.
