We all think we know our city but most of us really don’t know how it got to the way it looks today. Bob Morgan’s presentation: “The Urban Explorer – The nooks and crannies of Australia’s largest city” looks at the Yarra, Fishermans Bend, Docklands, South Melbourne, Sandridge and Albert Park - the wharves , the railways, the trades, the early shipping, disasters. industries and the infrastructure , the housing, fortifications and the nooks and crannies of the city.

Covering the period from the arrival of the 7 first white settlers on the “Enterprize” on Sunday 30/08/1835 until recent times, it uses old images of locations, incidents, and trades to explain how things were and how they evolved to the way they look and function today.
