The Pit of Death

A local mystery.

This photograph was taken in 1970 on Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross. If you know the area, it’s where the Coles supermarket is now, under the Coke sign.

The Pink Pussycat is in the background, at number 88, above the Top of the Mark restaurant (formerly the Hasty Tasty). The sloping shopfront is WA Grubb butchers, at number 86.

What on earth was The Pit of Death?
