A History of West Gippsland Tramways and the Industries they Served 1875-1934

Between 1875 and 1900 at least 130 sawmill sites were worked in this area, between Beaconsfield and Trafalgar. They were connected to the main towns and railway by tramways using mostly wooden rails. This network of trams, and their associated industries, provides the underlying framework of this book, which explores the relationship between the settlers and the sawmillers, which was so important in establishing agriculture in Gippsland.

Settlers and Sawmillers is a soft-cover reprint of the book first published in 1993.

Soft cover, 168 pages, A4 size, 96 photographs – mostly nineteenth century gems, 17 maps and diagrams – including seven in two colours, 6 graphs, one locomotive diagram, and 37 cameo images from the turn of the century.
