Building a City: CS Daley and the Story of Canberra

$30.00 AUD

Charles Studdy (CS) Daley and his close connection with the story of Canberra for over fifty years is the subject of this book. CS Daley was to be involved with a wide range of community groups in Canberra during his working life with the Commonwealth Government and in retirement. He always hoped that he would be given the chance to write the official history of Canberra, whose early years he had been so closely involved with. He was disappointed in this hope, but until the end of his life he saw himself as an authentic spokesman for early Canberra and a reliable witness to those first decades when the Commonwealth’s new city was being planned and built on the Limestone Plains.
