Movers and Shakers and Money Makers: St Kilda 1841-1900 The wealthiest suburb in nineteenth-century Melbourne, ‘Aristocratic St Kilda’ became known Australia-wide as a bastion of privilege and power. Join us as Carmel McKenzie, author of St Kilda 1841-1900 Movers and Shakers and Money-makers, presents a vivid account of the rise and fall of the merchants, speculators, squatters and others of their ilk who imprinted their aspirations and values on St Kilda, and discover how nineteenth-century St Kilda reflected–and affected–the social, political and economic history of Victoria. Bookings are essential with a gold coin for entry.
