Who invented refrigeration? An Australian of course, one James Harrison. He was Scottish born, a large regional town newspaper owner, The Geelong Advertiser now a Murdoch paper, and a member of Victoria's upper parliamentary house called the Legislative Council.
I had no knowledge of this and I was surprised when I came across this plaque somewhere in the north in the city.
You can read more about him here. It isn't too heavy.
Don't we have a lot to thank James for? Now, time for a glass of chilled and crisp sauvignon blanc. Cheers James. Set to publish at 5am, so clearly not written at 4.50am.
