Interested in the history of Port Melbourne?  Find out more and visit the exhibition this week.

Port Melbourne residents, Graham and Margaret Bride, have written an accessible, illustrated history of Port Melbourne from the year Liardet stepped ashore at 'the beach' in 1839 to the eve of the second World War. 

There 'is something for everyone' in this publication as Professor Weston Bate said in launching the book.

The book is supported by an exhibition of a very high standard in the foyer/gallery of the Port Melbourne Town Hall at 333 Bay St. The exhibition is laid out according to the chapter headings of the book. If you haven't got the time to read the book, you can get an excellent overview of it from the exhibition. It closes on Friday.

The book is available from the newsagent and the Port Melbourne Town Hall Assist desk
