These reminiscences of an English girl 'in service' present a remarkably lively portrait of Australia in the eighties and nineties. The story is delightfully different, an evocation of a little-documented side of life in nineteenth century Australia. Brisbane during the Jubilee, Sydney Centennial celebrations, and the Melbourne Exhibition provide the background to the colourful, continuous whirl of dinners, balls and garden parties of colonial society. Hard cover, 26x18cm, 145 pp, fair condition, dust cover Edited by Helen Vellacott, Currey O'Neil Ross Pty Ltd, South Yarra VIC First published in 1932, reprinted 1983
