Historical information

The Victorian Local Government Handbook was first devised by Frank Lonie in 1936. It was designed to help the layman (Councillors and their Senior Officers) be introduced to and understand the Local Government Act. This copy is the eighth edition.


This book adds the Eltham District Historical Society's "Shire of Eltham" civic collection. It is significant in that it adds context to the understanding of other items in the collection, especially for the 1936-1974 era.
