Some brief overview of book

Say the words 'Toad Hall', or 'Pink Flat' or 'Shrieking Shack' to someone who's studied at the University of Otago and not only will you likely see a wry grin form but you'll probably trigger a hilarious yarn or two of life during their scarfie days. While every generation of students has added to the pantheon of student flat names, few probably realise that the colourful and rich history of named flats in North Dunedin reaches all the way back to the 1930s. In the pages of 'Scarfie Flats of Dunedin', Sarah Gallagher and Ian Chapman share some of the stories of these flats, how they got their names, who lived in the, and what life was like there.

The book also features essays by Otagoites about the place of these flats in popular culture, music and street art, as well as such erudite subjects as what it's really like to live on Hyde Street, home to this country's most famous street party. Sarah Gallagher has been researching scarfie flats named since 2000 and is the brains behind the Dunedin Flat Names Project. Ian Chapman is Head of Programme, Performing Arts at Otago University and has published numerous books including, The Dunedin Sound.
