Did you have a favourite cubby, swing or climbing tree in childhood that you can still remember today?

Memories of special childhood places can remain vivid even after the passage of many years. In this presentation, historian Carla Pascoe Leahy discusses her research into the favourite places of post-war children. Drawing upon interviews, maps and photos, she reveals how baby boomers remember the treehouses, playgrounds and shelter sheds of 1950s Melbourne. 

Dr Carla Pascoe Leahy is an historian at the University of Tasmania where she teaches in the Diploma of Family History. She is also an Honorary Associate at Museums Victoria and Joint Editor of Studies in Oral History, the journal of Oral History Australia. 

Presented by Yarra Plenty Regional Library in partnership with the University of Tasmania, Diploma of Family History
