Paddington: A History | edited by Greg Young
The first major history of Paddington – Sydney’s celebrated heritage suburb – in forty years
This first major history of Paddington in forty years provides a fresh and revealing perspective on this celebrated heritage suburb in Sydney – one of the largest and most intact Victorian enclaves in the world. Leading historians and specialists explore the makeup of Paddington’s diverse community – including its Indigenous, colonial, post-war migrant, bohemian, and LGBTQ residents, and a succession of gentrifiers – and discuss the evolution of the suburb’s unique architecture and landscape.
