Featuring historic houses of Balmain.
“Around Balmain” has been produced in an effort to provide the “book about Balmain” that so many people request when they visit the area.
We have chosen to provide a view of the older houses in which people live, of their schools, hotels, hospital and public buildings but not, with a few exceptions, of their working lives either now or in the past.
We have tried to select some locations with particular historical interest, and others that reflect types of dwellings built in the 19th and early 20th century; a tour in fact, “Around Balmain”.
