Part of Auckland Libraries' HeritageTalks programme.

Learn about the establishment of the Chelsea Sugar Works and the impact it had on the local community.

While the opening of the Harbour Bridge impacted North Shore communities, 70 years earlier the building and opening of the Chelsea Sugar Works significantly affected the fledgling Birkenhead community.

Join Brian Potter, a local historian from the Birkenhead Heritage Society, as he discusses how the sugar works attracted new settlers, provided employment and enhanced the skill of the community.

Are you interested in family and local history? Or about the history of New Zealand? Then come along to one of our fortnightly HeritageTalks. Experts in specialised fields deliver these talks and provide insight into our histories.

HeritageTalks take place at Whare Wānanga, Level 2, Central City Library, unless otherwise stated.
