Sydney abounds with curious history. Some stories are known but many have disappeared over time.
Cultural historian and storyteller Warren Fahey has created a dozen video stories of the city's past; each offers a unique slice of Sydney’s hidden history.
Sydney Stories with Warren Fahey features footage from the collection of the NFSA.
It was created with assistance from the City of Sydney Creative Fellowships Fund and support of The Vine Foundation.
