This book describes a short easy historical walk around the heart of Annandale, NSW, Australia. The walk starts at the corner of Johnston and Collins Street Annandale. Adele and Alan Taylor married in Annandale in 1886. The walk is entwined with the Taylors and their local contemporaries Saint Mary Mackillop, John Young and Henry Parkes, the Father of Federation. The book also covers the Engineering Heritage listed Annandale Sewage Aqueducts, the first reinforced concrete structure in Australia, and Public Transport in 1890s Annandale. Marghanita da Cruz has been researching the history of Annandale since 1998. In April 2011, she guided this walk for a group from the National Trust. It was so well received that she was encouraged to publish it.
