The history of Canberra goes back long before today{u2019}s Y-shaped city of sprawling brick veneer suburbs began to take shape. Episodes of Old Canberra traces links with Nelson{u2019}s victory at Trafalgar, the Napoleonic wars and the England ofGeorgian times. It tells how pioneers explored the area and their contacts with the Aborigines, how squatters came and the convicts stole to live. This lively text is enhanced by many illustrations linking present day Canberra with the past.
