Richmond Villa is at the northern end of Kent St near the approaches to the Harbour Bridge. Wynyard Station (train and bus) is a 10 minute walk and ferries are 15 minutes away at Circular Quay. There is some metered street parking but public transport is recommended.


In addition to the traditional markets the retail outlets were fast developing in the major cities. Thousands were employed in the food retail area, but which area and what type of food did they sell and what was their life like? Uncovering some of these mysteries may well give us food for thought!
