Condition: Good+    
Inventory #: 0001222    
       

 

On offer is the original manuscript diary handwritten by Mr. B.B. Le Tall who was a Victorian Government Railway Engineer and a surveyor. [He has not identified himself in this book but the handwriting matches other diaries we list separately where he has identified himself.] All the entries concern planning and construction of railway lines in the Victorian country regions around Melbourne - Ballarat, Lang Lang, Drouin, Broadhurst, Kilmore etc. This is truly a one of a kind relic of 19th century Australian railway ephemera. The 19.5 x 12.5 cm book has entries for the majority of days from January through early December when Le Tall writes he is ill. Sometimes the entry is as simple a statement of location but much more often there are copious details of the work and his observations. Overall VG.
