Growing up in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy in the 1950s and 1960s was an adventure, and at times dangerous for a kid of migrant parents. It was considered a slum area and the close-knit community had more than its fair share of ratbags, drunks and crooks.
For Chris Bennett, a cheeky and boisterous kid, the streets of Fitzroy led to trouble with authorities and exile from his home and family. These same streets, along with other haunts, saw him mucking about in the Fitzroy baths, racing and crashing a homemade billy cart, standing in the outer of the Fitzroy Footy Ground barracking ‘Carn the Roys’, catching yabbies in the Exhibition Gardens and jumping off Kanes Bridge into the Yarra River.
This memoir is about an ordinary Roy Boy who experienced some extraordinary events that helped shape his life.
