“Hi, how’s it going?”, a bloke shouted to me in a friendly manner from a backyard BBQ in Ridge Lane. As I walked a few metres on, he asked if I wanted to come in for a beer. “Fine, thanks”, I shouted back.
That simple exchange convinced me Ridge Place and Ridge Lane are probably nice little places to live, although strictly speaking I doubt if anyone actually lives on either, since both seem to be back laneways for people living on Ridge Street and Cleveland Street.
As part of my ongoing efforts to document the streets and laneways of my neighbourhood in a more interesting manner than Google Street View, I went for a further wander this afternoon.
Compared with some of the laneways I’ve seen so far, these two are quite interesting for their diversity, and for the wonderful colours, shapes and textures to be found.
