Dunedin’s Athenaeum Hosts The Winter Vintage Roundup

 

Who would have believed there was such a hidden architectural gem so close to the Octagon? Dunedin’s Athenaeum complex was built in 1861. It was named after Ancient Greece’s ‘Athenaion’, a venue used for poetry readings. More than 150 years later, the complex is being developed as a much-needed venue for the arts thanks to Lawrie Forbes, a developer of heritage buildings. What a fitting venue for yesterday’s well-attended Vintage Roundup. Thanks to Tannia Lee (organiser), all the stall holders and vintage shoppers for making it a splendid event!

  1. Brings me back to Plum Street in Detroit in the 60’s.
