Artist's Description

Built in 1844, Susannah Place is a small terrace of four brick houses including a corners grocer’s shop, located in the heart of The Rocks, Sydney.
Susannah Place has never been substantially remodelled; it has never been converted into offices or degenerated into factories or warehouses. Rare in the City of Sydney, it has a continuous history of domestic occupancy by working class families and demonstrates the ways these houses were lived in from the mid-1840s to the late 20th century. This is the heritage significance of Susannah Place.

Truely worth a visit to delve into Australia’s unique past. This little General Store is a replica of the original General Store that was on the corner of Susannah place, there are so many wonderful memories of my childhood here and some amazing memoriablia. You are still able to purchase goods and souvenirs. They have old Arnotts Biscuit Tins,the old packages of Weetbix Cereal Boxs, hard musk sticks, Saxa Salt and all the old wonderful brands I recall from Childhood,
