Early Castlemaine

A Glance at the Stirring Fifties. The Municipal Council 1851 – 1863, from original text by Frank McKillop [Editor of The Mount Alexander Mail, 1908]. Edited and annotated by Geoff Hocking [includes Bryce Ross's Guide to the Goldfields, The Diggings' Directory. 1852]

112 pp, paperback [New Chum Press 1997]

The original text for this book was published over several months in 1908-9, in long columns of almost unbroken text in the Castlemaine 'Mail'. This new edition has reworked the typographic style, has added sub-headings, paragraph breaks and more than 100 photographs, graphics and artworks from the period which have sought to enhance the work and to make it more accessible to the contemporary reader.
