Connecting Balmain People Places and the Past

An exhibition featuring seven Balmain People in the historic Balmain Watch House.

Balmain has been the home of many people who have made significant contributions in the past so the Balmain Association will highlight seven such people: the industrial heritage of Thomas Mort’s dockyard, Henry Perdriau’s ferries and rubber manufacture, the Elliot Brothers chemical manufacturing, John Booth’s sawmills, John Bell’s shipbuilding industry, Maybanke Anderson’s contribution to social welfare particularly women and children, and Mrs A’Beckett who set up a ladies school and applied for land for subdivision.
