Shire Of Mundaring, 1983, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, Dust Jacket Condition: Good, First
"The first fingers of white exploration reached into the region little more than 150 years ago, at a time when hunting Aborigines still roamed a primeval forest of towering jarrah. For almost half a century only one narrow track wound its way between Guildford & York before a pattern of settlement began to emerge amongst the intervening hills. This was prompted by the construction of the Eastern Railway during the early 1880s followed by the better graded deviation through Parkerville a decade later. The timber industry, the gravel trade, vineyards and orchards were the mainstay of the bustling little townships that sprang up alongside the railway lines and the book includes fascinating descriptions of life in the heyday of each locality."
