Thirza Pidgeon’s 1937 World Tour – 22 February: Melbourne

Monday,  22 February 1937

Arrived in Melbourne about 7 today, after a very rough trip from Hobart. Lost the quarter master overboard on Sunday night during the storm, very sad. Met the smartest thing. Had dinner at Myers; good meal, a lovely shop. Took train to St Kilda, had a good look around. Back to boat for dinner. Very cold & wet.
