Front cover - Peace Day celebrations in Warrandyte, July 1919.
The book project Wonderful Warrandyte-A Portrait was made
possible by a grant under the Australian Government's
2012-2013 Your Community Heritage Program (Your Community
Heritage - Sharing Community Heritage Stories).
Several members of the Warrandyte Historical Society were
involved in this book project which evolved after several years
of development ideas. Valerie Polley wrote the text and selected
photographs. Special thanks go to the Steering Committee of
Margaret Kelly, Andy Bevan-Jones, Richard Morton and
Wayne Rankin for their knowledgeable input and beneficial
editing advice, Murray Houghton for his specialised historical
knowledge and advice on further references, and Diane Baird
for editing. The book would not have been possible without
all the dedicated work of the Society's members, past and
present, who have contributed to the Society's substantial
archive. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the
Warrandyde Historical Society.
