The Vale of Avalon

This unique photo is one of our favourites and is a one-third part of a panorama shot from the present roundabout at ‘Kamikaze Corner’ in late 1921. (Old) Barrenjoey Road sweeps from left to right as it climbs over the crest near Central Road in the distance. A.J.Small is in the process of clearing the site which became the public school 30 years later. Avalon Parade (also lined with planter boxes) is the straight line heading west (left) from the intersection with (Old) Barrenjoey Road.
