“Little Eveleigh Street has changed little since M and I lived there 17 years ago*, though there have been quite a few changes in the area – more on that later. It was then, and is now, a surprising oasis in deepest Redfern/Darlington. It also had a strong community feel…. The little attic window was put in after we left. It was a very small house, but the backyard was surprisingly big.” — November 8, 2008  *Make that 23 years ago!
