Plotting out '60s Annandale on a Lego Map

One of the challenges in writing the Annandale Short Walk books is developing the map.

This time round, I am seeing if Lego makes the task any easier. So, I have built a map of Annandale out of Lego and placed the information about the stops around it and lego people marking the stops.

As it happens, I have fond memories of playing with lego in the 1960s. There is also footage of my parents taking me to Legoland in Denmark circa 1963.

So, the stops - starting at the Toll Gate, Parramatta Road and finishing at Rozelle Bay where the form work for the platform for the Sydney Opera House was constructed.

  2. Camperdown and Annandale Police Stations
  3. The Annandale Estate - Annandale House, Torrens Title

  5. Annangrove Cottage
