The A to Z of 2205: Denison St

Denison St was named after Sir William Denison, Governor of NSW 1855-1861. (The Origins of Street Names in the Municipality of Rockdale, compiled by Alderman Ron Rathbone, 1990)

Below: Trees, which have an unusual growth pattern, probably due to repeated Council or electricity company prunings.

Below: Postcode 2205 still has several independent corner shops. Many areas have lost their corner shops, or in the case of newer suburbs never had them.
