Description

The well-heeled residents and chic businesses that cram into today's Surry Hills are a far cry from the battlers, crime bosses and rag trade factories of old. Famed in books and condemned in municipal reports, Surry Hills began in convict times as the most popular address on Sydney's fringe. Chris Keating charts the ups and downs of a place that has been called salubrious, iniquitous, desperate and hip.This illustrated new edition brings its story to 2007.
