ORM Floor Talk – Underworld
November 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Hear more Underworld stories in this free floor talk with exhibition curator Nerida Campbell
The Roaring Twenties was a golden era for criminals. Social change post World War I brought opportunity, especially for the criminal elite. New markets emerged that could generate incredible wealth for those willing to operate outside the law. The Underworld’s strongest and most cunning criminal bosses monopolised the sale of illicit drugs and drink, employing toughs to protect their interests, clever crims to devise new scams, and weaker ones to do the drudge jobs.
