The St Kilda Historical Society gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the City of Port Phillip for providing storage and office accommodation at the St Kilda Library and for providing ongoing funding for various projects. Without their kind support the Society would not be able to function.

We would also like to pay our respects to the people and elders, past and present, of Yalukit Willam and the Kulin Nation on whose land we are gathered. We acknowledge and uphold their relationship to this land.
