Secondhand. Good condition. Ex library book with stickers removed. Wear to book corners and edges. Some marks on book foredges.
Northcliffe was abandoned by the WA Government within 36 months of being established in 1924. Hundreds of parents and children managed as best they could, facing the Depression, the Second World War, bushfires, drought and poverty, delays and closure of their rail service, withdrawal of teachers and removal of schools. But still, the community refused to leave.
The Leitch and Richards families between them provided 133 years of service to this tiny rural community. Surrounded by pasture and tall trees, close to the sea and experiencing the 2015 bushfire nearly 100,000 ha in size, Northcliffe's energy, pride and humour are continuing to overcome nearly a century of adversity.
