This first major history of Paddington in forty years provides a fresh and revealing perspective on this celebrated heritage suburb in Sydney – one of the most intact Victorian enclaves in the world. Leading historians and specialists explore the makeup of Paddington’s diverse community; including First Nations, colonial, post-war migrant, bohemian, and LGBTIQA+ residents, and a succession of gentrifiers while discussing the evolution of the suburb’s unique architecture and landscape.
