Gawler Historical Account 1860/1880

The information contained in this booklet (without the two illustrations) can also be found in George Loyau’s The Gawler Handbook: a record of the rise and progress of that important town.
The edition you see here was possibly issued as a school textbook.
Loyau’s Gawler Handbook formed, in part, the basis upon which E H Coombe compiled the History of Gawler, 1837-1908. Derek Whitelock’s book, Gawler, Colonel Light’s Country Town” (1989), also draws on parts of Loyau and Coombe.
