On August 7, 2013, the Oxford Tavern at Petersham in Sydney’s inner west closed its doors.

The iconic pub became famous for offering its patrons decades of topless beverage service and free, live performances from showgirls 3-7 days a week.

On its final Tuesday performance night, dancers travelled across Australia. Patrons queued down Crystal Street and drank the kegs dry.

Renowned Sydney photographer Lyndal Irons documented the 48 hours before the closure, ending an era and changing the neighbourhood forever.

Industry Update readers are invited to the opening of her solo exhibition at the Fracking Redundants Art Gallery, 111A Crystal St, Petersham 2049 on February 26 at 6pm.

Alan Davies, Curator of Photographs at the State Library of NSW, will launch the exhibition, which will be included in Marrickville Open Studio Trail (March 1 and 2) as part of Art Month Sydney.
