Telling tales

Warmans - Correys Ave & Concord Rd

Over recent months, oral historian Olev Muska has been collecting stories of the North Strathfield community, past and present.

The project, North Strathfield Neighbourhood Stories, celebrates the lives, stories and experiences of the community through an exhibition at Concord Library and a website. The exhibition documents many wonderful stories of the social history of the area. Among the participants in the project are the Hon. Michael Kirby who grew up in North Strathfield and resident Colin Burgess, formerly of The Masters Apprenctices and AC/DC.

North Strathfield Neighbourhood Stories will be launched at Concord Library on Wednesday, 20 March by the Hon. Michael Kirby. Bookings are essential, contact Concord Library 9911 6200. The exhibition is at Concord Library, 2-31 March 2013.

The photograph shows Warman’s Grocery, corner of Correys Avenue and Concord Road, North Strathfield in the 1930s. Today it is the Liu Rose, itself a local landmark and one of the first restaurants in the area.
