History | Local Content

Dancing With Bacchus delves into South West Victoria to discover more than 350 hotels operating in the Hamilton, Portland, Warrnambool and Camperdown districts, along with their satellite communities. Starting with one fellow getting his throat cut and ending with a public house on fire, there are many tales to tell from the inns in this area. Mostly taken from the newspapers of the day, through Trove, the work is augmented with input from Ancestry.com.au and other research facilities. The work has an introduction, four separate sections, is illustrated, is annotated throughout, has listings of the various publicans, 349 pages, reference sources, a section giving meaning to 'What's in a Name?' and is fully indexed. This was a labour of love through Covid19 lockdown.
