Bairnsdale: Portrait of an Australian Country Town
"Bairnsdale's changing fortunes are documented against a background of Australia and the world, its inventions and scientific discoveries, wars and revolutions and natural disasters, some of which made little impression on a Victorian country town engrossed in its own affairs; others like the two world wars and the Depression, which could not be ignored. The story is taken up to the present day, with Bairnsdale a prosperous town having most of the comforts, and blemishes, of a modern affluent society, and the author looking back to a town that seemed in many ways better for the lack of rewards of progress.--BOOK JACKET.
