Scott Street Cottages

Group of 1870s houses with corner shop built as a result of the rapid development in Pyrmont in the 1870s, following the establishment of the CSR works. Supposed to be demolished for a factory in the 1950s, they were then bought by the City Council but squatters moved in, politics took hold and eventually the buildings were saved. Artists have painted them over the years.
