Welcome to 12½ Plymouth Street, in Sydney’s Surry Hills. This is the home of the Aussie Irish Catholic family, The Darcys, as lovingly told by award-winning author Ruth Park. In The Harp in the South and Poor Man’s Orange, Park tells of the trials and tribulations of growing up in a Sydney slum in the years immediately following the Second World War.
In The Harp In The South we first meet the Darcys, a poor, working class family of tough Irish stock – Mumma (Anne Phelan), dad Hughie (Martyn Sanderson), Roie (Anna Hruby), Grandma Kilker (Gwen Plumb) and younger daughter Dolour (Kaarin Fairfax), through whose eyes we hear their story. A story that centres on the bittersweet first and last loves of Roie, who becomes a woman too quickly living among the tennament houses, razor gangs, brothels and sly-grog shops of inner city Surry Hills.
The Darcy family’s story is continued in Part 2 of The Harp In The South and the follow up, “Poor Man’s Orange.”
PART 3 “POOR MAN’S ORANGE”
THIS WAS BACK THEN IN ANOTHER NATION… BUT REALLY, DOES NOT MATTER, BECAUSE IT JUST KEEPS REPEATING OVER AND OVER AND OVER… ONE CYCLE AFTER ANOTHER.
MINUTE 1 HR 12 MINUTES 16 SECONDS TO 1 HR 15 MINUTES 10 SECONDS
If you missed it, go back and listen to it 1hr 14minutes – 1hr 14minutes 12 seconds.
IN A WAY, THIS “NEIGHBORHOOD” PERHAPS HAD IT A BIT BETTER BECAUSE… HOW MANY ARE NOW IN THE USA ARE LIVING IN TENT CITIES, FROM SHELTER TO SHELTER – THAT IS, IF IS ANY ROOM, RIGHT ON THE OPEN SKYS/STREETS AND ON TOP OF THAT – GET PENALIZED/TICKETED BY CITY’S RULES AND REGULATIONS… YES, MANY THAT IS ALL THEY CAN AFFORD.
…yes, who can argue at it:
“…were ever you find the poor; you will find the money grabbers”
Today this “money grabbers” are often called bankers/MIF – fiat monetary system.
Does it matter the name given? No, not at all.
