The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery has had a long and active interest in Tasmania, particularly that of Launceston and its hinterland.
The studies included in this book come from a variety of sources. Repeatedly, however, the richness and importance of oral resources is apparent.
Launceston is one of the oldest cities in Australia. Established in 1805, it has developed as an important industrial, administrative, and commercial centre for the northern part of Tasmania.
Topics include the 1929 floods, World War II, railway workshops, textile factories, automobile manufacturing, Longford Races and more.
