The Heidelberg Historical Society Museum is now open on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm

Truth, Beauty & Utility Exhibition now open

This exhibition traces the Arts & Crafts Movement, from the sudden craze for Japanese-inspired decoration in the 1880s to the non-historical ‘Art Nouveau’ of 1900, to the rugged Californian bungalow of 1920—all as seen in our local area.

‘Truth, Beauty & Utility’ is now open at the Museum and can be viewed on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Please note that for the remainder of 2021 the Research Room will not be open on Sundays due to density requirements. The Museum will be closed during December 2021 and January 2022.

Chinese market gardens

Posted on Thursday, 15th April 2021 by Janine Rizzetti

What a fantastic talk we had at our meeting on Tuesday 13th April! Terry Young discussed Chinese Market Gardens in the northern suburbs, most particularly along Livingstone Street, Sparks Reserve and the Darebin Creek.

He has shared some of his resources with us.

Below is a map showing where the Chinese Market Gardens were located.You can zoom in closer and see the progress of his research on a shared Google Map at https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=161xXefJkuO5M-aYTK9Hg_gwaf8-b9xD6&usp=sharing

He has a webpage where he has listed the resources he consulted for his talk. You will find it at http://www.bit.ly/chinesemarketgardens
