General Meetings and speakers for 2019

Date

Topic/s


8 September 2019

Speaker: Gary Carter


“About that Shout, the History of Pubs in Parramatta”

Gary is a local author who was born in Concord and raised in Parramatta. He worked in the Electricity Supply industry with Prospect County Council and Integral Energy, in Network Control. Currently he is semi-retired, on the executive of the Parramatta National Trust and a board member of the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce. His family history, which included publicans, mid-wives and female factory inmates, dates back to the early days of the colony; this triggered his interest in research. Parramatta was the hub of transport and commerce in the mid-19th century and Inns (Pubs) and stables were the centre of most commerce.


He felt a need to put in writing that history, not just of the places, but some of the people that took a part in the story. This book is titled ‘ About that Shout’. The history of Pubs in Parramatta.
