(Taken from words of encouragement given to the author by the late Sir William Hudson Commisssioner of the Snowy Mountains Authority) "From time to time many articles have been published on various features of the Snowy Mountains Scheme about its many spectacular dams & its powerful generating stations; about the achievements of its tunnellers in breaking world records for tunnelling speeds; about its completion well within the initial estimate. Those who initially conceived the Scheme, its designers, the scientists who sought & found answers to the many engineering problems, all these people have received recognition through the press, the radio & other channels. There is a modest group, however, who are seldom mentioned. They are the ordinary Snowy workers, including particularly the men who in the early & tough days of the Schemes construction went out into the mountains & gorges of the inhospitable area, living under canvas or at the best, rough huts throughout Snowy winters. Covers have some light shelf wear. There is a small cut to the the DJ on the rear edge about 10mm from the top.
