In 1916 my ancestors were living at 222 Strickland Buildings, Sydney. I'm trying to get some idea of what sort of place this was. I've found on the internet it was a landmark in public housing for its time, and the first large scale public housing building in Australia. It describes how each of the 71 flats had its own balcony, which makes it sound very nice! But was it? Being social housing, would you have been relatively poor to live there? And how can my people have been at number 222 if it only had 71 flats?
Thanks for any help
