TIME: 2.30pm – 4.30pm
VENUE: Paragon Café, 65 Katoomba Street, Katoomba, NSW
An illustrated lecture by social historian Leonard Janiszewski and documentary photographer Effy Alexakis
Back by popular demand as part of the 2017 GREEK FESTIVAL OF SYDNEY!
This lecture at the famous Paragon Café, Katoomba, will highlight the content of the speakers’ recent book, Greek Cafés & Milk Bars of Australia, based upon 30 years of research on four continents. Throughout most of the twentieth century, Australia’s Greek cafés and milk bars generated unprecedented social and cultural change. Janiszewski and Alexakis will demonstrate how enterprises run by Greeks successfully married Hellenic and cross-cultural influences with local needs, merging local fare with new American food-catering ideas and products. Spreading through both country towns and large cities, these businesses contributed to a major change in Australian eating habits and popular culture.
COST: $20.00 (INCLUDES AFTERNOON TEA)
