Vintage Great George Street.

A tale of George and the dragon

Great George Street has changed dramatically over the years, and in modern times has become somewhat of a wasteland.

This wasn’t always the case, as even in the early 1970s it was a thriving area of the city until dereliction set in.

Join us on a journey down Great George Street – a place to be remembered and celebrated before it’s rebirth as New Chinatown…

      I’m researching my Great Grandfather, Peter Byrne! When he died in 1917 his brother, A Byrne (I don’t know his full christian name yet) registered the death and listed his address as 35 Great George St.

      Any help would be much appreciated!
