Here we're on New South Head Rd at Edgecliff/Double Bay...looking outbound...the distinctive Sandstone retaining wall we see here was part of 'Friarscroft', which I gather was located at 315 New South Head Road, per the current street numbering...<br/><br/>I suspect these workers might be widening the road and putting down new kerbing and guttering...per various digitised newspaper hits, quite a few sections of New South Head Road were widened in the mid-later 1920s.<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/222943427'>trove.n...
