Exhibition ‘What happened at the Pier’
on until 13 February 2015 at the Emerald Hill Heritage Centre, Bank St, South Melbourne.
This moving exhibition centres on some valued objects that people brought with them on the journey to Australia. They hold stories of migration and are a means of sharing that story with family and a broader audience.
The exhibition is curated by Lella Cariddi, who arrived at Princes Pier with her family in 1955 on the 21st of June. The themes of the exhibition will flow through into the Piers Festival on the 25th January.
There are some images of the Piers in the exhibition you’ve just got to go and see.
