Blue Lake: Finding Dudley Flats and the West Melbourne Swamp

September 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Glen Eira Historical Society – Speaker Series, a talk by author David Sornig on Wednesday 22 September 2021 at 7.30pm via Zoom

Through the years of the Great Depression and beyond, the wetlands, rubbish tips and shanties of Dudley Flats, a neglected zone hidden in plain sight just a stone’s throw away from central Melbourne, was home to a transient community of hundreds of men and women.

In this talk, author David Sornig will discuss Blue Lake: Finding Dudley Flats and the West Melbourne Swamp, a history of this largely forgotten world, and the tragic, enterprising, eccentric and determined lives that were lived there.
