The A to Z of 2205: Atkinson Lane, Arncliffe

Atkinson Lane runs off Atkinson St. It leads down to a magnificent view of Gardiner Park (which is in Banksia (postcode 2216). Unexpectedly, there are some houses with their frontages onto the lane, probably having been subdvided from land on Atkinson St, or Knight St. There are also soem Knight St backyards.

Sure does bring back memories.
Lived on the left hand side of the Lane in an old weatherboard house...all built up now.. Spent many hours playing on the 'rocks' as we called the ledge at the back of the Knight St. houses. All the houses on left of Lane are built on the backyards of Knight St. Only the one we lived in faced Atkinson. The two houses facing the park on the bottom right of Lane were built in the 1960's. That was the back end of the block on the right of Lane that once had a large weatherboard my time needed some repairs....but had been one of the old gracious houses of its day. The park was our backyard.....a wonderful place to grow up. I was also like another on this site born at Rosslyn hospital. Great site...there sure are some gorgeous buldings in Arncliffe. Mary
