Millers Point from Observatory Hill
Some of the houses in this area are amongst the oldest in Sydney. They have been owned by the government as public housing, but, controversially, the government has evicted long term residents and is selling the properties. People are being rehoused elsewhere. What is clear though, is that what were once 'slums" are now highly desirable, multi-million dollar properties, and the poor are no longer welcome.....
NB - I do not know whether the houses in this photo are amongst those being sold.
