"Here's To'ee": Tapping the Tooheys Collection

Recorded on 6 September 2022, as part of the Scholar Talks series

The Tooheys Limited collection, which comprises 300 volumes, provides an important counterpoint to the extensive Tooth & Co collections held elsewhere. Dr Lisa Murray will share some of her insights and discoveries from tapping these historical records, including the architects who were commissioned by Tooheys to redesign their pubs. 

She will also demonstrate the digital mapping she has undertaken of Tooheys tied-hotels, based on data extracted from the collection. This significant collection promises a deeper understanding of the way the breweries controlled the industry and influenced pub culture in New South Wales, and demonstrates Tooheys position within that market.
