Readers might recall the Bulletin article in which the Society nominated journalist Dorothy Drain for a Blue Plaque. Our voice has been heard!

Dorothy Simpson McGregor Drain lived at 52 Toxteth Road and is remembered as one of Australia’s most outstanding journalists who helped pave the way for the Australian women journalists, editors, and war correspondents of today.

The Blue Plaques Program of Heritage NSW has informed the Glebe Society it has conducted a site visit at the property and agreed on a proposed location for the Blue Plaque.  The Program is currently in the process of securing relevant council approvals and once this is done, will start the plaque manufacturing process.
