City of Sydney Library Lunchtime Conversations is a series of free talks with authors, artists and experts.
With travel plans disrupted over the last year, many people are rediscovering and exploring their local area. This first talk of our 2-part series offers a deep dive into an alternate view of Sydney.
Imagine you are a bird, flying over Sydney. What might you see and how different would the city look from above? Join City of Sydney curator Margaret Betteridge as she takes you on a guided tour using historical aerial views of Sydney from our archives and collection.
In this 1-hour talk, Margaret will showcase the architecture, history and unique stories of Sydney as viewed from the air. Her presentation will be followed by a short Q&A session.
Margaret is the curator of the City of Sydney’s civic collection. She enjoys sharing special stories about Sydney through some of the City of Sydney’s fascinating and intriguing objects and archives.
