A beautiful autumnal day for a historical wander around Glebe.
We visited the house where Robert (born Robin) Askin grew up, saw the park where a wireless was installed for poor families to hear the current news, had breakfast in one of the old original pubs, learnt of the strong medical ties to the area and were staggered to learn that Glebe Public School once had 2,300 students!
