Eumemmering covers a large area on the south-eastern (Dandenong) perimeter of Melbourne, Victoria. With insight and scholarship, combined with a fine literary style, Mrs Uhl traces the development of this once peaceful district into a thriving, modern, industrial zone with its noise, its buildings and its land speculations. Through it we can follow the evolution of Australia from a primary producing country in the 19th century to a rapidly expanding industrial nation in the 20th century. Personalities, buildings and landmarks are presented and discussed with loving care, thus making this book one of the most notable local histories to be published in the last decade in Victoria.
