Middle Park 1 From Swamp to Suburb

Author(s): Middle Park History Group

Australian Studies

Traces the development of Middle Park from low swampy country to a suburb with a mix of architectural styles, with a short military period in between.

A number of significant buildings that have either now disappeared or changed their use will be examined in detail - such as Lanark Terrace, Montalto, the Good Shepherd Convent, Hughenden, the Nauruan 'Embassy' and a number of churches.

Two influential businessmen of the late 19th century will also feature - William Oxley and his boatyard, and Louey Ah Mouy, one of the early Chinese immigrants whose descendants still live in Middle Park.
