Collingwood was established as one of Melbourne’s first municipalities in 1855. One hundred and thirty years later the City of Collingwood came to an end as it merged into the City of Yarra in 1994. During this time its boundaries did not change but much else did. At its demise it was felt timely to record, at least briefly, those changes, and something of the lives of those people who lived within those boundaries.
