Tasmania's Bygone Years of Road Transport.
A brief pictorial history of early motoring and the automotive trade in Tasmania, from 1930 to 1939. It covers the years of the Great Depression leading to the declaration of war in 1939. The government of the day started road and Hydro schemes, including the construction of Pinnacle Road on Mount Wellington. Cars moved from a box style to more streamlined design.
"Second Edition" may refer to this publication being the second volume of "Tasmania's bygone years: road transport". No previous edition can be found by cataloguer.
