Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery
Book, 54 pages, perfect-bound.
Proudly printed and bound by Foot & Playsted.
This publication pays tribute to the people and the industry that once held pride of place in Launceston’s industrial landscape. The Launceston Railway Workshops opens a window into the past: to a sprawling industrial workshop with a diverse and often multi-generational workforce.
The photographic archive of Tasmanian photographer Stephen Carter featured throughout this book adds to the ‘sense of place’ this site commemorates. The images capture the very real character of the Workshops and its people.
The appeal of this book lies in its rich definition of an important historical landmark.
