Event details

Birkenhead's early European settlers worked hard to break in the land, creating orchards and strawberry gardens. Then came merchants and business people, who bought larger blocks that were later laid out in house lots for sale.

The photographs feature some of the early settlers and entrepreneurs who left a legacy of buildings, street names, gardens or their unique stories recorded in local history.
