From the 18th of April to the end of May, Footscray Historical Society will be exhibiting historical photos of Seddon and local suburbs in the branch in recognition of Australian Heritage Month.

    The exhibition will run in conjunction with a series of guided heritage walks run by the Footscray Historical Society and Seddon Village Traders Association during May.

    Each walk will have a different focus

    – the history of Seddon Village shops and the owners 

    – significant homes and the stories behind them 

    – local pubs and the boxers and colourful characters associated with them…
