SHOPKEEPERS tells the stories of Fairfield's drapers and bakers, butchers and delis. The exhibition outlines the changing retail landscape and developing commercial centres where general merchants make way for specialty stores and suburban shopping malls.

Spanning a period of over 100 years, SHOPKEEPERS presents a social history of local entrepreneurs and business owners.
