This biography traces Smith s life from his migration to Melbourne, through his Bourke Street medical practice (and museum of anatomy) to his career as a maverick politician in Victoria's Legislative Assembly. He was, at various times, a medico, writer, publisher, politician, litigant, showman, speculator, collector, wine-maker, farmer, and a racehorse breeder. But he was also a guiding hand for Melbourne s great exhibition complex (Melbourne Exhibition Building aka the Royal Exhibition Building).
