I’m Glad I Was There
On Tuesday 28 July 2020, unable to meet in person due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place in Victoria at the time, the Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society held its first ever online meeting via Zoom.
The topic, ‘I Wish I Had Been There’, was conceived by Margaret Bride and resulted in eight PMHPS members each describing an event in Port Melbourne’s history that they wish they had been there.
During the evening, Beris Campbell put out a call for any photographs of Port Melbourne Mayoral Balls. They were lavish affairs by Port standards and the photos must exist out there somewhere. PMHPS seeks your help to uncover them.
