History in houses - Homes of our KINGSBURY and CARRICK ancestors

My maternal grandmother was a KINGSBURY and her mother was a CARRICK. They lived in Balmain, a suburb of inner Sydney, in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Although I don't have photographs of their homes from these times, I have gathered photographs over the last few years.

At the time of his first wife's death in 1893, James Walter KINGSBURY was living at 4 Hart St, Surry Hills.
