This wall of a now-closed business in Erskineville provides a fair bit of visual interest. Many may recognise 1960s TV star kangaroo, Skippy, and her "master", Sonny, in the top left corner!
More about the park in the foreground tomorrow.


  1. tres beaux dessins, et bel hommage.j'adorais cette serie enfant.
    merci pour ce retour en enfance.
    bon dimanche

    very beautiful drawings, and beautiful hommage. I liked this series child. thank you for this return in childhood. good Sunday

  2. I taught Garry Pankhurst, who played Sonny. It was at Randwick Boys' High School and he showed he could not act when he appeared in a play I directed. He suffered as each time he approached a class te kids all made kangaroo noises. He reached a level of infamy later in his school career.

    1. Hi Frankie, did that infamy involve a missing exam paper?

  3. Skippy...souvenir, souvenir! Even for a little French girl lost in Western France like me.

  4. ohh looked forward to see tomorrow's post about this wall:)

  6. Like everyone else, I thank you for reminding us of Skippy. A nice come back to my childhood.
