Brimstone to Bunyip

Churches of Collingwood, Clifton Hill & Abbortsford. 1852-1998

Collingwood Historical Society, Melbourne 1999.

So far only 2 sample pages of almost 90 pages are scanned and included here. The book also needs updating to cover the past 16 years. In progress.

A walk around the stories and sites of religious intervention in Melbourne’s once poorest now most desirable suburb and its more genteel neighbour. Note how they stayed well clear of the most sacred site of them all: Victoria Park and how gay venues have since colonised the territory.
