 Docklands History Group: Marvellous Smellbourne

Image1

Description

Early Melbourne choked in the stench of noxious trades such as tanneries, abattoirs and glue factories, earning the city the unflattering moniker of 'Marvellous Smellbourne'. A century-long struggle to clean the city's air began.

Join author and historian, John Lack, for this fascinating presentation about a forgotten chapter of Melbourne's history.
