Our flat is part of a large development, which was in turn part of an even larger inner city slum clearance program after the second world war.
The slums were known as Happy Valley, located along a creek bed the 19th century housing was basic and pretty miserable, the slums were replaced by public housing and affordable privately owned flats. This is the third flat in the development that I’ve lived in. I love it.
We’re a few blocks from the home my Grandpa was born in, and the one he spent most of his childhood and young adulthood in, before they moved to Coburg to better themselves.
