Dalgety building tour

The September ‘meeting’ of the History Society was a tour of the 1902 Dalgety building, the offices of the Mediterranean Shipping Company, which now include Murray Slavin’s new building at 11 Cliff St and his major changes to the older building. We were very fortunate to have as guides Murray Slavin himself, and also Stuart Neal, from his office,  providing a wealth of information about the building complex. Here are some photos:

September meeting

Dear all

Our September meeting is just a week away. It is a very special opportunity to get inside the recently restored Mediterranean Shipping Company Building – also known as the Dalgety Building.

MSC are opening this beautiful landmark as a special favour for FHS members. It is a very busy workplace and so access is being given on the morning of Saturday 16 September.

Please note the change in time from the newsletter AND also note the building will be locked behind us as we enter so don’t be late or you will miss out.

Saturday 16 September; arrive at the main reception doors at 11 Cliff St by 9.50am for a 10.00am start.

MSC are keen to get numbers as well so please RSVP to Greg Luke (gregsueluke@bigpond.com) with numbers attending no later than Thursday 7 September.

This a great opportunity – I hope you are able to make it.

Kind regards, Anne
