Daphne street

Bolton, G. (1997) Daphne street. Fremantle Press, Fremantle, W.A.


There are thousands of Daphne Streets all over Australia, and they all reflect a shared history, resonating with the life experiences of ordinary Australians making a society.
Can a history of a nation be written through the story of a single suburban street? Professor Geoffrey Bolton turns his acute historian’s gaze on the neighbourhood of his youth, producing a unique blend of autobiography and historical analysis. Bolton interweaves the moving stories of Daphne Street residents with the narrative of the street’s development from dusty working-class outer suburb to a leafy inner-city professional neighbourhood.
