In 1963 and 1964 Tasman Lavender, then about seventy, spent as much
time as his fragile health would allow, writing the story of his life
between 1910 and 1915* Several times each week he caught the train from
Gordon on Sydney's North Shore into the city, to work at the Nitchell
Library. There he researched the history of some of the places he had
worked at or travelled through in those early years. He added the
fruits of this research to his recollections.
