War Depression War

War Depression War: Part Two of a Family History 1901-1945

The family story continues from 1901 when the author’s great-grandparents Wilson moved from Tallawang near Gulgong to Chatswood, a suburb on Sydney’s North Shore line.  At the same time, his great-parents Steele settled in Goulburn, a country town southwest of Sydney. The story follows the successes and tragedies of the two family lines through the World War I, the Great Depression, to the end of War World II when the author’s parents built their first house in Lane Cove a lower north shore suburb. (The cover is a mock-up featuring the author’s parents not long before they married).
