Three Cemeteries of the Upper Hunter

This book and accompanying DVD builds on earlier projects to record gravesites of the Upper Hunter. It records the transcription on each headstone for Giant’s Creek Cemetery, Mount Dangar Cemetery and Wybong Cemetery. In the back of the book is a DVD with photos of each grave and another of each headstone.

There is also information recorded on possible unmarked graves in each cemetery.

Standing the Test of Time

This book is a collection of photographs which records various buildings and structures which were erected prior to the Second World War. The collection incudes civic building, hotels, commercial buildings, churches and historic properties. A few residential buildings are also included. Some of the buildings have had renovations, additions and alterations but are for all intents and purposes are basically as they were built.

In most cases an early photograph has been used and a more recent photo added to show the changes, if any, which have occurred over the past 75 years or so. A brief history has been included on each structure.
