From the 1920s, the Aboriginal community of Melbourne began to steadily increase with the wave of Aboriginal people coming from various missions. By the 1950s, Fitzroy supported a community of more than 300 Aboriginal people, with many living in surrounding inner city suburbs. During this time, Fitzroy became the largest Aboriginal community in Victoria, and the social and political hub of Aboriginal Melbourne.
