A wander down Marion St Leichhardt on Saturday 13 May 2023
|Firestation at 1 Marion St Leichhardt|
VS Naipal wrote in "India" about being in a Taxi and passing a crowd celebrating a festival the taxi driver was unable to tell him about. The gathering was just one of many in that City - Mumbai.
I felt like that in Leichhardt as I walked past the Firestation on the way to Boomalli Aboriginal Arts Cooperative and #EDGEInnerWest.
There was much excitement around the Fire Station Open Day.
|Cottages and Mural demolished for a Parking Lot|
Past the car park fence, marking where Cottages with two murals by Adam Hill (aka Blak Douglas) were destroyed in 2017 for the parking lot.
Past the Uniting urban oasis for over 70s.
|Rough Paving ~134 Marion St, Leichhardt|
|"Rectitude" at Boomalli curated by Kyra Kum-Sing|
Past the waitress from the coffee shop across the road chatting. Across the road to find the Cafe has changed hands.
Past the intersection where Valentina Gioia was so tragically fatally wounded when she was hit by a vehicle, while crossing the road.

"It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut." - V. S. Naipaul
