James Tyrrell Sydney History

Lot 14: James Tyrrell Sydney History

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Two scrapbooks compiled by Jim Tyrrell. One volume has hand written on the spine Jim Tyrrells Newspaper Cuttings With Index. This volume bears the bookplate of James R Tyrrell (designed by RB). The handwritten notes give dates running from 1907 to 1918. Most of these cuttings appeared in the Sydney Newspapers of these dates but are to do with Sydney 100 years earlier. The Second volume is much larger and thicker than the first and the spine of this has disappeared. Together these two volumes give fascinating stories of old Sydney. Many of these accounts are now long forgotten and they make a good source of history for the modern reader
