No one was safe in the Melbourne of the 1920s. Gangs operated in hotels and brothels, gunshots were fired in the streets of Fitzroy, and sly grog shops, armed robbery and protection rackets were rife. Through it all strode the notorious Squizzy Taylor, always one step ahead of the police, and with not a speck of evidence to give him away. The daily press eagerly reported his crimes and marvelled at his daring . but was he really anything more than a bloody-minded criminal who would one day get what he deserved? And what is it in the spirit of Melbourne that keeps the legend of Squizzy Taylor alive today?
