The Unidentified Project

Why stop now?! Even though our exhibition Unidentified is over and done with, there are still some names missing from the faces. We will be posting these portraits one at a time on our Facebook Page and continuing the quest to identify their subjects. We will also be giving you all the information and stories we have gathered so far.
So spread the word - “Do you recognise anyone?”

Nanette Sharman - Something About Sulphur Creek

Thursday, 17 May 2018

Nanette Sharman is the author of two books on the history of the Sulphur Creek area – “There’s Something About Sulphur Creek”, and “Something About Lingtown (A Sequel: More About Sulphur Creek)”. These were written in consequence of her delving into the stories of the birthplace of the fraternal grandparents she never knew. Nanette’s talk will deal with aspects of the early history of the area from first European settlement in the 1850s.
