Did you know that the Collingwood historical Society has available for sale a great range of publications about the local history of Abbotsford, Collingwood and Clifton Hill? Amongst others these include Karen Cummings’ award-winning history of school in Collingwood, the history of churches in Collingwood and the short history of Collingwood. You can find a full list of them and how to purchase them on the website here.
In December members of the Collingwood Historical Society set up a book stall in Queens Parade Clifton Hill (well actually it was in North Fitzroy), and sold lots of books to passersby. We also enjoyed chatting to people about local history and answering their enquiries.
If you are in Queens Parade and are interested in some local history publications, we have a new outlet for them as the florist, Terrace Gardens 338 Queens Parade, is now stocking them for us! So pop into Terrace Gardens some time and have a look at our publications while you are buying some flowers or plants. Terrace Gardens are open seven days a week.
