Welcome to a new style of event with historical storytelling, music and performance in a hidden heritage courtyard bar, Since I Left You, at 338 Kent Street serving freshly shaken cocktails, local wines, craft beers and bar food.
 
Resuming throughout 2022, on the third Tuesday of the month, join us to hear historical tales associated with the Kent Street storehouses and the Western Corridor of the CBD including the underbelly and alternative histories. Hear from architectural scholars, raconteurs and, during the winter months, see lost photographs from Sydney’s busiest trading spot in the 1880s projected onto the material fabric of the buildings.
 
Historical gastronomy will be featured on the menu along with musical interludes inspired by the era and the courtyard ambience.

The History High Tales is held in an outdoor venue. Please come prepared with suitable warm and waterproof clothing if the forecast predicts unfavourable conditions as this is an all-weather experience.

Tale Nine: Minding Her Own Business: Sydney’s Early Entrepreneurs

Tuesday 15 March,4:30pm

And you thought 19th century Sydney was a man’s world, and a woman’s place was in the home? Think again. Just as they are today, women have always been in business. Sydney’s streets were awash with enterprising women - from demure dressmakers to bawdy brothelkeepers, with the odd ironmonger, plumber and confidence trickster thrown in. Award-winning historian Catherine Bishop explores the stories of these businesswomen – the sensible and successful as well as the bankrupts and bigamists.
