Many people in the Western suburbs have strong memories of the refineries and workshops that once defined Mosman Park’s identity, but others today have no knowledge that the area used to be a major area of industrial employment. The sugar refinery at Rocky Bay was often called ‘the ghost house’ as it was always lit up as it operated through the night.

As part of its Oral History Program, The Grove Library commissioned oral historian Cate Pattison to interview thirteen people who worked at the Colonial Sugar Refinery, CSBP Farmers, the State Engineering Works and General Motors Holden. Cate has produced a compilation of her interviews that paint a picture of Mosman Park as a place to live and work in the 20th century, now freely available online at (https://soundcloud.com/grovehistory/ghosts-of-mosman-park-the-decline-of-industry). 

“Mosman Park has changed dramatically since the 1950s, when many people found employment there and working families made their homes nearby. Local kids would have to come home when they heard the knockoff siren from CSR or CSBP” said Cate. “There’s almost no trace of those buildings or businesses there today, and some commented how this makes them feel that this part of their past has been completely erased.” 

This free presentation will include an overview of the cultural and physical transformation that has taken place in Mosman Park over the last thirty years and share stories and reflections on the lives that were lived in this previously mixed-use area.

This not-to-be-missed event is being held at The Grove Library - 1 Leake St Peppermint Grove on Tuesday 24 April 6pm-8pm. To book your spot please email library@thegrovelibrary.com or phone 9286 8686 to attend.

Boomerang Bags work to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities in the making of Boomerang Bags – community made, using recycled materials. Boomerang Bags provide a free, fun, sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

This workshop will teach you the sewing skills required to make the Boomerang Bags which will be distributed to local shops to create a more sustainable Mosman Park. 

By getting involved, you are participating in a global movement, celebrating a grassroots initiative focusing on community building and sustainability.
