Williamstown: A Landscape of Historic Change

Join Martin Johnson talking about his latest book From Rabbit Traps to Cellar Doors – stories, poetry and photographs from Williamstown, one of South Australia’s early villages. Martin will speak about the loss of employment opportunities that has changed the social and cultural dynamics of a community that had been established by dairy and mixed farming, orchards, timber mills, clay mine, reservoir and pipeline construction, home-grown bakeries, butchers’ slaughter-yards and forestry; opportunities that no longer exist for youngsters looking for a start in life.

Presented by Martin Johnson
