Reflect on days of old at Pubs, liquor & the law exhibition


Join Hurstville Museum & Gallery this Saturday 6 May for an informal afternoon tea and viewing of the latest exhibition at Snapshot Gallery, Pubs, liquor & the law.

Pubs, liquor & the law is a selection of historical photographs sourced from the Georges River Council Local Studies collection.

The images in this particular collection have captured the changing face and role of local pubs in the St George region throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Over the years, the pub has remained as a recognised meeting place for a diverse range of social gatherings – a locale where people could meet, talk and have a drink.

The evolution of pubs saw the ‘six o’clock swill’, which is no doubt unimaginable for today’s young people, who are accustomed to more gentrified boutique pubs.

Pubs, liquor & the law is a reflection and celebration of times past.

Where: Snapshot Gallery, Hurstville Museum & Gallery When: Saturday 6 May 2017, 2.00pm
Transport: The venue is a short walk from Hurstville Train Station and bus interchange.
