See Melbourne through Garryowen’s eyes – the people and places of early Melbourne. Garryowen’s Melbourne brings to life many of the characters and buildings in early Melbourne. The exhibition incorporates lively descriptions taken from Garryowen’s (Edmund Finn’s) Chronicles of Early Melbourne: historical, anecdotal and personal 1835 to 1852 published in 1888 set alongside images from the collection of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria. It showcases a corroboree where Parliament House now stands, explores Melbourne’s early buildings and personalities, and features Garryowen’s sometimes satirical, often amusing, descriptions.
