A family story about Jenny Davies' grandparents first meeting at a ballroom at Flinders Street Station compelled the author to discover more about Flinders Street Station and write Beyond the Facade: Flinders Street, more than just a railway station. Her research uncovered that along with housing a train station, the building has also been home to a lending library, several dance and theatre schools, a lecture/concert hall and classrooms, a gym and sauna and many more surprising organisations and facilities.
The talk coincides with the 100th anniversary of the station and an exhibition at the Royal Historical Society of Victoria.
This session is free, however bookings are essential.
