Blue Mountains Historical Society Talk - "Hidden History of the Blue Mountains"
Magda Cawthorne owned and ran a second-hand book store in Springwood for many years. There, she was often asked for an easy-to-read history of the mountains but there really wasn’t one.
Magda’s retirement from book-selling enabled her to devote her time to researching mountains’ history. The result is her book, Hidden History of the Blue Mountains, filled with photos and interesting facts about the Blue Mountains.
Scattered through the pages of her book, Magda brings alive the colourful characters of the past, as well as telling the stories of discovery, of crime and of celebrations throughout the last 200 years. Her book is accompanied by magnificent photographs of mountains’ places. It’s a coffee table book into which the reader can delve at will.
Come along and listen to Magda as she talks about the history of our beloved Blue Mountains.
Morning tea will be available for a small donation from 10am. The meeting and talk, for which there is no charge, will commence at 10.30am.
