Event details

You might have heard the row of old shops and restaurants on the western side of the junction of Victoria and Albert streets in central Auckland referred to as Martha’s Corner, but who was Martha?

Join Dan Windwood, Senior Built Heritage Specialist at Auckland Council as he tells the story of Martha Lindsay and her family in the 19th and early 20th centuries based on newspaper reports from the time.

If you think the activities of the West family in Outrageous Fortune seemed a little unreal, come meet the Lindsays...
