The Birth of Milk Bars

Come and join us at our next General Meeting to hear the "foremost milk bar historian", Leonard Janiszewski speak on Shakin' the world over: the Greek-Australian Milk Bar.

Did you know that the world's first "American-style" milk bar opened in Martin Place, Sydney in 1932?

It was the brainchild of a Greek known as Mick Adams (Joachim Tavlaridis).

The milk bar, the Black and White, attracted over 27,000 customers in the first week alone!

Come along and hear more.

Our meeting starts at 2pm in the Gordon Library Meeting room - please note access is not available through the library, you need to enter and exit through the door from the driveway.

Afternoon tea is available after the speaker and visitors are all welcome.
