Welcome to the e-book version of
"Pots, Punks and Punters"
A History of Hotels in St Kilda And South Melbourne
Written by Becky Aizen
Illustrated and Web Design by John Hulskamp
The author and the St Kilda Historical Society gratefully
acknowledge the invaluable assistance of Kay Rowan and the Port Phillip Library
Service, and the participation of a variety of managers and patrons of the pubs
of St Kilda (see Sources). Publication was assisted by the City of Port Phillip
Cultural Advisory Board through its Cultural Development Fund. Chris Stoneman
skilfully and voluntarily took on the challenging task of editing. Thanks are
also due to the planning committee which over time included Gillian Upton, Peter
Johnson, Tom Ingram, Vida Horn, Melanie Eagle, Pearl Donald, Kaye Brett and
Meyer Eidelson. In particular the contribution of the late Arthur Rowan, who
pioneered research on South Melbourne’s hotels, was invaluable.
book is dedicated to the memory of Vida Horn, the founding librarian of St Kilda
Library and a dedicated member of the St Kilda Historical Society. In 2002 she
edited our first book ‘Spirit of St Kilda’. She conceived the idea for this
current book on Hotels but passed away before its completion. Vida edited many
books with passion, the keenest eye imaginable and great heart. She represented
the best virtues of a society member: commitment, a love of knowledge, respect
for people from all walks of life and unshakeable integrity.
