Visions for Dunedin: Our Heritage, Our Future

PUTTING YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD: PHILIP DAVIS AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF ARCHITECTURAL STYLE IN DUNEDIN

In partnership with the Southern Heritage Trust, Dunedin Public Libraries is pleased to host a series of inspirational talks throughout the year, exploring visions of Dunedin’s past, present, and perhaps more importantly its future. 

SPEAKER: Jeremy Moyle, originally from Christchurch, Jeremy has studied archaeology at both Otago and Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada. He has been involved with archaeological and heritage consultancy for the past five years and works as an archaeologist for Origin Consultants in Dunedin.

Dunedin's Victorian house facades are one of the most distinctive aspects of the city's streetscapes. In this presentation Jeremy Moyle explores the significance of Dunedin's 19th century architectural style through the story of Philip Davis, an English immigrant who settled in the city in the 1860s.
