A message from City of Sydney Historical Association:
‘SYDNEY CEMETERIES – A FIELD GUIDE’
It might seem like a strange thing to do but City of Sydney Historian Dr Lisa Murray compares a visit to a cemetery to visiting a sculpture park or museum and encourages everyone to visit cemeteries like they visit their local park.
Lisa will talk about her new book and tell us some of the strange and interesting stories of many of Sydney’s cemeteries and the people buried there. The ultimate handbook – from crowded inner-city plots to spacious burial grounds in semi-rural spots. Cemeteries are not simply places for the dead – they are designed for the living.
SATURDAY AUGUST 12TH @ 2pm
Venue: Sydney Mechanics School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Cost: $3 Members $6 Visitors
