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 largest and most intact Victorian enclaves in the world. Leading historians and specialists explore the makeup of Paddington’s diverse community—including its Indigenous, colonial, post-war migrant, bohemian and LGBTQ residents, and a succession of gentrifiers—and discuss the evolution of the suburb’s unique architecture and landscape.
