Collingwood Historical Society Plaques Project. Interpretive history. Heritage

An excellent example of interpretation can be seen in the twelve plaques installed by the Collingwood Historical Society with the assistance of Heritage Victoria and the City of Yarra. These signify local sites of industrial heritage important to the development of Melbourne and Victoria. This project won the Best Collaborative/Community Project in the 2008 Victorian Community History Awards. History@Work researched and wrote the plaque and accompanying website text for the Doll’s House on the corner of Cromwell Street and McCutcheon Way.
