Hugo Youngein (Lyunggren) standing outside his 'cash grocer' at 64 Gloucester Street c1920s Detail of a photo of Hugo Youngein ran the corner 'cash grocer' at Susannah Place from 1904 to his death in 1930.

Located in the heart of The Rocks, Susannah Place is a terrace of four houses built by Irish immigrants in 1844. For nearly 150 years these small houses with tiny backyards, basement kitchens and outside wash houses were home to more than 100 families. Against a backdrop of the working harbour and growing city, their everyday lives played out. Remarkably, Susannah Place survived largely unchanged through the slum clearances and redevelopments of the past century, and today tells the stories of the people and families who called this place and this neighbourhood home.
