Unmasking the Past - the 1919 flu pandemic and housing

Wednesday, 12 August 2020 - 5:30pm to 6:00pm

Fiona and Shane delve into the past with retired historian Dr Anthea Hyslop, currently in lockdown in the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria who is noticing some startling parralels with the 1919 flu pandemic known as the "Spanish flu".  As one of the few experts on this part of our history, Anthea tells us about what happened a hundred years ago, the similarities and differences with what we are living through right now, and how the flu pandemic caused us to look at the link between housing and health.
