From Spring Hollow to Spring Hill...
Presenter: Spring Hill Community Group
From the Colonial to the uncertainty of Metropolitan Regionalism: A Quirky Review of What Was and What is Spring Hill.
When 'country' becomes land, ownership becomes power and laws are written in legislation then what follows are suburbs founded on the European Tradition - and they develop in a certain way.
The local economy, planning laws, sub divisional practices, surveying and transport needs transform a 'place' that has houses, house lots, fences, streets, footpaths and social connections into what we call a suburb.
Our story charts some of the features of the suburb, now called Spring Hill, from 'then to now', using a cultural historical activity theory approach as a way to frame the plot!
