Welcome to the Manly Local Studies weblog. I hope to use this space to share information about the history of Manly, NSW; to keep you informed of what we are currently researching; and to pick your brains about stuff that is puzzling us.
This year, we're going to be busy compiling fact-sheets on a number of historical topics, which you'll be able to download from the Manly Council website. Feel free to point out any mistakes!
This year also sees celebrations to mark the Centenary of Seaforth, which was first laid out by the developer Henry Halloran in 1906, so any memories of Seaforth will be particularly welcome. We are on the look-out for old photographs of Seaforth, which may be used in a commemorative booklet, so let us know if you have any.
