|This extraordinary book containing the names and addresses|
of a people working on the land and in the cities
in each state of Australia
was published in New York in 1881.
It consists of 2,000 pages
set in hot metal
on the other side of the world.
What a feat!
It contains an entry on page 166 placed by my great grandfather:
John Mawby, fruiterer, Market lane, Mudgee.
This book is at the State Library of NSW.
