Social Sketches of Australia 1888-2001

by Humphrey McQueen

Humphrey McQueen’s compelling narrative features the experiences of everyday life: what people wore and ate, the sorts of houses they lived in and what they learned at school. In addition, he looks at how they were affected by natural disasters as well as by disease and by working conditions in an increasingly industrialised society.
