A ‘cracker’ of an exhibition that reveals the very human side of this monumental industrial site. The many men and women who have worked at Clyde Refinery through its long history have experienced the evolution of working conditions, safety standards, gendered roles, and communication relations within an environment of advancing technology. What is revealed is their unwavering mateship and ties to the wider Parramatta community
