NEWSPAPER SNIPPETS. NLA NEWSPAPERS.

My grandmother, JESSIE SARAH READY ( BELL) and her family  were resident in LITTLE YOUNG STREET REDFERN. i shall confirm the dates later but we were told the house was under where the Greek Orthodox Church now stands. The time in Redfern was late 1800s to early 1900s. I have found a few snippets as background for the times.
