The Sydney suburb of St Peters is an older and largely industrial suburb, 7km south of the CBD. It was named by its association with St Peters Anglican Church, which was consecrated in 1838. It once was the home to a large brickworks and a garbage tip, which have since been redeveloped into parkland. I took a walk around there and the neighbouring suburb of Newtown recently. Much of the area is as I remember it from passing through the area regularly in the 70’s, except that the smell from the old garbage tip is no longer there.
