  1. Enjoying all these photos of Strathfield in the past. Does anyone remember a small plant nursery opposite the railway station? Even better, has anyone a photograph of the nursery or any further detail ?


    1. My grandparents owned the motel next door to that nursery ‘Strathfield Towers Motel’ before it was sold and demolished late 80’s early 90’s. I’m here trying to find some about the motel. Along Albert Rd there was the motel, then the nursery, then the original Strathfield Car Radio store next to that


      1. I remember the motel. I’ll see what I can find. Either check back or subscribe to the site, which updates by email when there is a new post. Regards, Cathy


  2. Hi
    Years ago we used to go to Mr Keary’s general store. As a 17 year old I got to work in this store as well. With its very quaint lolly jars everywhere – I miss this store.



  3. Looking for any information about William Denham Matthews who lived in Albert Rd. Had shops in The Boulevarde, (Grocery, & Butchery were two) evans


      1. Thank you so much for the prompt reply! William Denham also had a son , William Denham, maybe his address is coming up also. I do recall my husbands grandfather living in Albert Rd. We were married in 1956 in Congregational church in The Boulevarde , is it still a church ? Or a victim of progress? So interesting!


      2. Pauline, William Denman Matthew’s is listed electoral rolls in 1932, 1934 at 48 The Boulevarde Strathfield, 1936 at ‘Illawa’ Kingsland Rd Strathfield, 1943 at 30 Albert Rd, 1949 88 Albert Rd. He married Beryl Alexander in 1943. Died 1959, buried at Rookwood Cemetery, Presbyterian section. Son has unfortunately the same name, but there is a William Denham Matthews Jnr listed in 1943 at 10 Kingsland Rd Strathfield, other listings for this name are in Greenacre and Belmore, if it is the same person. The Congregational Church on The Boulevarde is the Trinity Congregational Church. It is still standing and is on the State Heritage Register.
