walk in the fateful footsteps of Melbourne’s most infamous criminals and crooks on this 2-hour crime history tour.  From former brothels, gangland murder sites, sly grog shops and the places where criminals such as Squizzy Taylor drank, fought, got hitched and faced trial. Get to know what it was like to struggle for survival in Melbourne's home of criminals - old Fitzroy.

Learn about the figures that gave Fitzroy a reputation for violence in the early 1900s and the reality of life that led so many to choose crime.

Your guide is Michael Shelford.  Michael is a writer, freelance journalist and private historian.  He has written for the Guardian newspaper, Time Out magazine and has featured on ABC Radio.
