Inkerman Street was short of kids in the 70’s except down towards the dead end. We use to play cricket in the street, forcings back with footballs and use to fish down at Inkerman Street Jetty. One house (whose parent still live there) had 4 kids and across the road (whose parents still live there) had two kids.
Who remembers the Inkerman Street Baths ? Actually located off Carrington Avenue at the base of steps from Inkerman Street. I don’t know about the origin of the baths or when it was dismantled. A school friend at Sacred Heart who knew the baths introduced us children to this off-the-beaten-track swimming spot, situated in the supposedly shark infested waters of Middle Harbour. We constructed a very basic raft of planks and five gallon drums to use at the baths. Time early 1970s.
