The History of Playfair St, The Rocks

17–31 Playfair Street is an example of Victorian workingmen’s terraces. It is representative of typical workers housing built for the rental market during the mid-Victorian period in Sydney. It demonstrates clearly the stages of development of this group and the typical subdivision patterns which occurred during the period 1875–1883.

Argyle Terrace and Foundation Park are the first residential restoration/revitalisation projects undertaken by the Sydney Cove Redevelopment Authority. (Green 1998:44)
