The Balconies Story: link
As a child growing up in Bondi, we often swam at Bondi Baths located in Notts Avenue. We would have to pass this building where we would dare each other to run up the stairs through the building to exit on Campbell Parade.
It was dark and scary, a few unsavoury men lived in the building who would throw their brown beer bottles on the footpath in Notts Avenue.
Time move on and this site now boasts a magnificent apartment block with breathtaking view over Bondi Beach selling in the millions! Oh if only we have a crystal ball back then!
