 Leaving their Mark


Our  book  "Leaving their mark"  documents, through short biographies, the lives of some of the movers and shakers who were instrumental in the making of Marvellous Melbourne.  Many were involved in moulding our society, and we honour their contribution and thank them for leaving their mark.
