Partway along Hume Street is a park on both sides of the street. One is wide and has a couple of park benches, one of which was occupied by two workmen having a break. The opposite side was a linear park leading to Gracedale Avenue. Along here was a home away from home.
Several picket fences indicated that it was a well-established street with large blocks with most houses set well back, giving large front gardens. A batch of roses had escaped through a gate that hadn't been shut for a while.
