, Sydney 2000
Shirley Fitzgerald, well-known public historian and ex-City of Sydney historian, will talk about the hotels that formed the centre of the community for many in the 19th century. They are fascinating places on which to hang some good local social history. Shirley has written two books about pubs in Ultimo and Pyrmont, but also has much to tell about the place of the pub in 19th century Sydney society generally.
