Canberra Camps, Settlements & Early Housing

A Story of Capital Hill by Ann Gugler - published 2009

This book is an update on my knowledge of the area where I lived from 1941-1959 - Westlake and the hill that I crossed many times on my way to and from Telopea Park Infants & Primary and to the Manuka Shops.  The focus is on Capital Hill, but it also includes a second section on general information on early Canberra and the Ngunawal people.   My first book was 'The Builders of Canberra 1909-1929' published in the early 1990s. It is currently being updated and draft chapters of the revised edition canbe be found under BUILDERS OF CANBERRA under the heading - Camps & Settlements.
