Marrickville

Amy Street

Main Period: Federation

Leadlight apparent at No’s 4 & 7

Amy Street originally ran from Sydenham Road, through the brickpits to Addison Road. Now it is a relatively short Street. It is shown as a Road in the 1883 Beer’s Estate plan that ran from Sydenham Road through to Addison Road. The Marrickville Brick Yards were excavated after 1883 and Amy Street was shortened considerably..
