Property Advert of the Week: Birrong Land Release (1965)

This week, I share an advertisement from October 1965 relating to a land release at Birrong in Sydney's south west. The lots were located Wellington Road, Hill Road and what is now Andrew Place.

I've provided a Google Streetview link to Hill Road at the intersection of Andrew Place. Notice the distinct difference in the housing between the side of the road featured in the advertisement and the opposite side of the road. Lots of red brick homes on the sites featured.
