To celebrate History Week 2018, the City of Sydney Historical Association will be hosting Angela Phippen who will tell the story of George Hedgeland who like many other 19th century migrants came to Australia for a new and better life.

George was an English artist and stained glass artist who became a pastoralist in Queensland and later a surveyor of Sydney streets. This illustrated talk will tell about George’s extraordinary and varied life, as well as the poignant and sometimes tragic story of some of the people, commemorated in his windows.
