It's over 50 years since the legendary '6 o'clock swill' ended for Auckland pub-goers. Discover the stories of our oldest pubs in the central city and inner suburbs, some notorious, some still standing, and others long gone. An illustrated talk presented by Dr Brian McDonnell with a feast of architectural images.

Presented by: I Love Ponsonby
