The story of the Yarra River in images from the 1850s to the 2000s
During the COVID 19 period, Dr Judith Buckrich had been researching the history of the Yarra River toward the creation of a book and exhibition in late 2023. Paintings, drawings and photographs of the river are integral to her research and will be used specifically as part of a chapter on artists and writers, as well as to illustrate many of the other themes.
This talk and slide show presents the work of some of the artists with discussion of their work and what it tells us about the river and our relationship to it.

Founded in 1972 the Caulfield Historical Society’s early work led to significant buildings such as Myoora, Halstead and Lirrewa gaining heritage protection at a time when many historic buildings were under threat of demolition.
In 1994, the City of Caulfield merged with the northern part of the City of Moorabbin and became the new City of Glen Eira. Some years later the Caulfield Historical Society changed its name to the Glen Eira Historical Society, to reflect the whole municipality of Glen Eira. View Map
