Notes:
This book was commissioned by the Box Hill City Council as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations. It covers both the familiar and unfamiliar in the City’s history. It is not just a collection of anecdotes and reminiscences. It looks at Box Hill as it grew from a rural backwater to a country town amid farms and orchards, then to an outer suburb, and then to – almost – an inner suburb. It looks at Box Hill in its days of rural depression in the 1860s, in the land boom of the 1880s when speculators carved up the farms into building blocks, and in the resulting collapse in the 1890s. And it looks at Box Hill in the hard and sometimes bitter days of two world wars and the Depression, in the sad times and the fun times. It looks at the days when the White Horse statue stood over a pub door and when Tait’s corner was the Railway Hotel, and explains how, why and when Box Hill became a ‘dry’ suburb. It looks at politics, councils, organizations – and at the people of Box Hill. The book has paid equal attention to the twentieth century and the nineteenth, and with the many fascinating photos its author is confident that there is something for everyone to enjoy reading about.
