A woman walks, baby strapped to her chest, through the streets of Fitzroy and Carlton. As she walks, she notices the way the skyline edges upward, nudged by the cranes of developers. And she notices the history of this place, ever-present, despite those cranes.

For this special episode, we present the first two episodes of The Fitzroy Diaries, and eight-episode series produced by the Australian Broadcast Corporation.

Fitzroy Diaries was created and written by Lorin Clarke, edited by Sophie Townsend, and sound designed by Mark Don.
