Suez Canal - 34 Harrington Street, The Rocks

Suez Canal was another one of the notorious streets of The Rocks in the 19th century, mainly due to its narrow passageway and its darkness before street lighting.

In memory of this seedy reputation a number of cut-out figures have been attached to the walls. They are reproductions of cartoon characters taken from newspapers of the late nineteenth century which depict some of the characters of The Rocks. These characters are generally called “larrikins”, the rough element of society at the time who roamed around The Rocks looking for mischief. Their women-folk were known as “donnahs” and were particularly noted for their large hats with large feathers. The cartoons were generally done by notable artists of the time particularly the early Australian artist Norman Lindsay.
