Meeting – Mon 25 February 2019 @ 7.30pm

Spencer Street Bridge, 1930. State Library of Victoria.

Have you ever noticed the Spencer Street Bridge? Arguably nondescript, this dependable 1930 structure has a backstory of political infighting, pioneering technology and an unexpected obstacle pre-dating the bridge by several millennia. Local history librarian Fiona Campbell will lead a visual journey through the design, construction and significance of this enduring bridge.

Fiona has worked at East Melbourne Library since 2005. Through her role as local history librarian she has discovered her inner history detective and loves to inspire interest in Melbourne’s stories and promote the importance of heritage preservation. Her work includes managing archival collections, events programming and assisting the public with research enquiries.
