Robertson, MacPherson (Australia’s Grandfather of Chocolate)

There is lots of research already on MacPherson Robertson including his own biography and books written by others. As such I haven’t yet tried to capture it in any detail here, but I do want to note there is a great walking Podcast made possible by the Ewing Trust, Yarra Library Fitzroy and the Fitzroy History Society on their page. The MacPherson Robertson Podcast provides some well known details as well as many new insights into this fascinating tale and amazing man.

I also want to use this page to pop other images I have of him, that are not associated directly with Fitzroy. Or photos that I have not yet been able to place.
