See Sydney as a Tourist in 1905

An illustrated talk with Margaret Betteridge, City of Sydney Civic Curator

Produced by the City of Sydney

Visitors arriving in Sydney by steamer in 1905 might have received a copy of John Andrew’s bird’s eye view map to guide them through the city.

City of Sydney curator, Margaret Betteridge will use this map to investigate some of the 74 places of interest back then, highlighting some of the city’s lost features – and some of those which remain.

The illustrated talk will take place in the meeting room on Level 2, Customs House Library.

Free, but bookings essential.

This event is presented by the City of Sydney as part of their program for History Week 2019.



Saturday 31 August 2019 from 1pm to 2pm
