Woodley, Peter

Description

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.
