Event details

From the jealous actions of a Donovan Street woman which could easily have proved deadly, to the mysterious and apparently motiveless murder of a young Crown Lynn potteries worker in Batkin Road.

Local historian Lisa Truttman examines these two examples of the use of poison in post-World War II Blockhouse Bay and New Windsor.
