Narrows

Is the the city's narrowest lane? Truly, none could be narrower. No dining tables set up for left leaning, chardonnay quaffing latte sippers in this one. Go on VCAT, you may as well get rid of it.

  1. Is this between Lonsdale and Lt Bourke? I remember coming across a lane like this late one night.

  2. Yeah, I thought of the same one Katya did. There used to be a Chinese restaurant at the southern end of it where a bunch of us used to go regularly. We nicknamed it "The hole in the wall".

  3. That's not a lane, it's an interstice !

    and I'm worried about Katya's nocturnal activities - please stay safe.

  4. Katya and Daniel, correct. I do not have full recall of exactly where it was, nor why we needed to walk along it.

    Had to look that word up Emstacks. You are so clever, but then you have lived in Sydney where there a probably a lot of interstices. It is a more apt description.

  5. I got it from Barry Humphries playing Dame Edna in a commercial for Westinghouse white-goods years ago.
    She was "slipping through the interstices between all her fabulous products possums".
    Can recommend the Barry book 'My Life As Me' =- it is a great read and full of words I had to look up:
    cicispeo
    maculate
    matutinal
    tegument
    pullulated
    couperose
    saliromania, and
    deracinated. Indeed.

  6. Even the vandals couldn't stand back to admire their handiwork.

  7. That would be a good while ago Emstacks. Black and white?

    Risky too Brian, a cop at each end of the interstice and no where to go.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
