Colourful Carlton Exhibition

Home > Melbourne > Community Events | Exhibitions
On this walk through the historic and interesting streets of Carlton you will see not only the beautiful 'boom period' architecture from the 1870s and 1880s, but also remnants of earlier eras, the 1850s and 1860s, before the advent of the cast iron terraces. ​Learn something of the early history of Carlton, its decline from a middle class suburb to a deprived working class area, some of the colourful characters who have lived in there, including its larrikins and criminals, the impact of the Housing Commission demolitions, and more recent dramatic events.

Meet at The Church of All Nations, 183 Palmerston Street, Carlton.
