Words and images from home and away
After we moved into a new house in Melbourne in 2009, I found out from a 1915 MMBW sewerage plan that it used to be called ‘Bryn Cymro’. I guess that means ‘Welsh Hill’, though I’m yet to find out who named it and why. But since my grandmother’s parents were Welsh, the coincidence was neat. So here perched on our hill with a view of the city of Melbourne, it’s a nice place to be, and a nice place to come home to after being away. I like to think these words and pictures of home and away link the past and the present, the local and the exotic, the everyday and the unusual, the hills of suburban Melbourne and the rolling hills and valleys of other places.
