The story of North Paddington is one of continuity and change. Not only has the landscape of this area been transformed to reflect the needs of a modern era, but it has also witnessed the blending of the cultures of longstanding residents with those from around the globe. This ebb and flow of people and technologies has created a unique community, whilst impacting the everyday lives of those who called North Paddington home.
