The A to Z of 2205: Amy St Turrella

Named after Amy jeeves, eldest grand daughter of Samuel Jeeves, pioneer Arncliffe settler, who still owned this land when it was subdivided.(The Origins of Street Names in the Municipality of Rockdale, compiled by Alderman Ron Rathbone, 1990)

A tiny residential street with only four houses. The most interesting features are the sound-barrier wall of the East Hills Railway at the end, and some rather natty garden decorations.
