June Guest Speaker

June Guest Speaker
Intercolonial Exhibition Building, 1870

Just a reminder that our June guest speaker will be Stuart Read who will tell us all about Prince Alfred Park – an under-appreciated city park where Sydney’s first inter-colonial expo (part of the ‘Crystal Palace’ world expo movement) took place.

He will highlight the park’s various phases of evolution through to what we enjoy today.  He has side stories on world exhibitions, fashion and taste, native plant use, the industrial revolution, notions of self image, royalty and changing uses of our open spaces.

You are invited to join us at our museum at 1 Bent Street, Concord, on Saturday, 1st June at 1:30 for 2:00 pm prompt start to find out more about this subject.  Following the talk you are invited to stay for some light refreshments.

These talks are open to everyone.  Admission is free but donations are always welcome.  See Poster under “Guest Speakers” in side column for full details.  Please feel free to forward to anyone you think might be interested.
