Exploring Footscray's Working Class History as Intangible Heritage - Cya On The Road

Dolores Hayden wrote in her 1995 work 'The power of place; urban landscapes as public history' that,"frequently, observations about urban space are ignored by historians because the comments appear to be of a spatial descriptions rather than social analysis" (p. 23).The aim of this public installation and virtual guide is to understand beyond the architectural heritage of the sites and explore the social, cultural and historical analysis of Footscray's working class and industrial history as intangible heritage to the area. - Hayden, D 1995, The sense of place and the politics of space, The power of place; urban landscapes as public history, MIT Press. retrieved on 07/05/19
