Marrickville has a long history as a manufacturing hub, with numerous industrial sites dotting its timeline. Signified no better than by the Marrickville Manufacturers Exhibition of 1935, that showcased not only manufacturers from the district, but indicated Marrickville as the ideal location for setting up shop. This display will explore the 1935 exhibition and this history of companies that took part, including Fowlers Potteries, Sydney Steel, Vicars Woolen Mills and General Motors.
