Manly walk with Roy Lumby
Sun. 31 July 2016, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm AEST
Join us on this walk as our President, Dr Roy Lumby, identifies the architectural gems still extant in this cosmopolitan seaside suburb.
Manly had been envisaged as a seaside resort by English-born merchant Henry Gilbert Smith (1802-1886) in the 1850s. Initially John had chartered a paddle steamer to Manly and other vessels visited on an ad hoc "excursion" basis. Smith built a wharf in 1855 and eventually acquired an interest in steamers himself and soon more regular services to Manly had commenced.
