Leonie’s presentation entitled, ‘Botany Wool’ explores the history of the once vibrant wool industry in Botany, which thrived in the area from the mid-1800s to the 1970s. The talk will explain the occupation of a fellmonger, the origins of the industry in Botany, key industry players, and the reasons for the industry's demise. Leonie's talk will illustrate the story with a selection of historic photos of Floodvale Wool Scour, from the collection of Bayside Council Library.
