Playfairs Terrace

1 Atherden St
The Rocks, NSW 2000

Playfair's Terrace was constructed under the ownership of local butcher and Alderman Thomas Playfair. Playfair was well known in the mid to late nineteenth century for his supply of meat to the maritime industry and his actions on the Sydney City Council to provide adequate services and improved sanitation throughout inner city residential areas.

The Terraces are constructed on a portion of land granted to early wharfinger and merchant. While Campbell's land incorporated the subject he does not appear to have used it as his operations were focused on the West Circular Quay foreshore.
