Review of Rosedale History Tour (and crime tour)
Architecture tells a bit about history but the people tell more
When you look at buildings you can tell the period of design by looking at them. Once you’ve seen the work of architects who led those designs, you find it all over the place. A famous architect designed part of the mechanic’s institute in a Gippsland town. He also built a theatre on Bourke St in Melbourne. The theatre is no longer standing due to bankruptcy and fire, neither the fault of the architect. This architect has work still standing all over Australia and you never have to set foot in Rosedale to see it.
This is why the lives of the people who lived here, who passed by here, fascinate us. We look at places and reveal how things used to be, through the stories of people who lived there. Some of the people are pioneers. Some people of the don’t have a mark left in town. This mixture weaves a tapestry of a unique story of the town we’re walking through.
