City of Sydney Historical Association (COSHA) present: The Role of the Pub in 19th Century SydneyJoin well known public historian and former City of Sydney historian, Shirley Fitzgerald, as she discusses the hotels that formed the centre of the community for many in the 19th century. Pubs are interesting in their own right, serving as fascinating case studies to extract information about Sydney’s social history. Shirley has written two books about pubs in Ultimo and Pyrmont, but also has much to say about the place of the pub in 19th century Sydney society generally.
