On the subject of the location of Jamie's city in
The Homeward Bounders

Heh! And here's me thinking it was set in Sydney. I have no idea why. I 
can only think that it reminded me a lot of 'Playing Beatie Bow'. I've 
only actually been to Sydney when I was too little to remember anything.
Anyone else see a similarity between the cities? Myself, it's been too 
long since I read either of them to justify the comparison...
Something about a bridge and lower class areas and brick. Perhaps I 
thought it was set round the time Syd Harbour Bridge was being built?
