1995 • ‘The Early Canberra House’

‘THE EARLY CANBERRA HOUSE: LIVING IN CANBERRA 1911-1933’, 1996, FEDERAL CAPITAL PRESS CANBERRA ‘…Canberra is still young enough to be able to reach back and touch its history in an intimate and thorough way. Thanks to such a distinguished and passionate scholar as Peter Freeman doing just that with this book, Canberrans of tomorrow will have a clear and certain view of some of the early days of this beautiful and unique city. Australians of the future also will have a comprehensive glimpse of the struggles and hardships endured to create an important, but largely unsung, aspect of the early architectural soul of their national capital. Publication of this book has been initiated by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects, ACT Chapter, and made possible as part of the selective and important programme of initiatives to celebrate the 70th anniversary of The Canberra Times.’
