Sydney Rowers Club, 613 Great North Road, Abbotsford, overlooks the Parramatta River at Hen & Chicken Bay. Founded in 1870, the club established its Abbotsford branch in 1874 at what was the ‘Red Cow Inn’.
From the club website history page, the location was,
“beautifully situated at a bold point of the river only seven miles from Sydney. There were already adequate facilities for members to remain whilst training and stop for the night if required. There was also plenty to do if tired of rowing; including fishing and shooting in the adjacent bush.”
Sadly, the “adjacent bush” was chopped down for housing after WW1 (my grandmother remembered the ironbark forest. She moved into the area in 1917 with my baby father).
Here are some pictures I took of Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters and the audience at Jazz on the Deck, today, Sunday 28 December. We look forward to playing again for the good people at Sydney Rowers…
Greg Poppleton is Australia’s only authentic 1920s and 1930s style singer. The Bakelite Broadcasters are all world-touring, vintage jazz musicians.
