This black and white image depicts convict-carved sandstone steps leading up to the old wooden door of house number 64.

Located in the heart of The Rocks, Susannah Place is a rare surviving example of a simple working-class terrace.

Built in 1844, by Irish immigrants and continuously occupied until 1990 this typically English terrace was home to over 100 different families. The four adjoining houses have survived largely unchanged.

This site is now operated by the National Trust.

64 Gloucester Street, The Rocks, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
