Sydney’s working-class heritage
Much of Sydney was built by immigrants, and this terrace of four tiny houses stands as a resilient reminder. Nestled in the heart of Sydney’s famous Rocks district, it has been home to more than 100 families over 150 years. Built by Irish immigrants in 1844, it has survived largely unchanged through the slum clearances and redevelopments of the past century, and today tells the stories of the working families who called this place and this neighbourhood home.
