The Good Old Bad Old Days
With Warren Fahey
The Good Old Bad Old Days explores the high life, low life and sometimes very low life of Sydney’s inner east. Join cultural historian Warren Fahey as he brings history alive with tales of snow-capped mountains and scenic railways at Rushcutters Bay’s White City, ‘peeping Toms’ at Elizabeth Bay, bodgies and widgies in Kings Cross, and the often bumpy highlife of Potts Point. Warren promises to deliver an eclectic romp through the social history of some of Sydney’s most famous neighbourhoods. Warren Fahey AM has been observing, writing and singing about Australia for nearly 50 years. The Good Old Bad Old Days is his 30th book.
