A history of the Newtown area covering the suburbs of Darlington, Newtown, Camperdown, Erskineville, Alexandria, Macdonaldtown, St Peters, Zetland and Waterloo.
Nothing has been published in book form on the history of this area since the Newtown Jubilee in the 1920s. This area grew in the middle of last century and with the early arrival of the train service became a rapidly growing Victorian suburb. Today these areas retain their architectural history, mixed in with Housing Commission of the 1950s and 1960s. An enormously popular book on this colourful and lively area.
