Details

From 1905 to 1966 Charles Daley was closely involved in the selection of the National Capital, in its building, in its government and its cultural and social life. In his reminiscences he tells us about the dramatic and exciting events behind the scenes as a public servant to many different Government ministers. The personalities of the planners and builders are often missing from conventional histories but here they are given due acknowledgement for their vision and their work in creating a grand new city. Much of the credit for its present beauty is their memorial, as well as Charles Daley's. Here is a book to read and enjoy. It is the very basis of history but is written in a personal, friendly style which makes it readily accessible to everyone. This is one man's view of the beginnings of Canberra from his own personal knowledge and it is alive with the people he knew and with whom he worked.

Soft cover, 182 pgs, photographs, chronology, index. Very good. 195mm x 260mm
