Foreword by Cr. Les Willmott, J.P. - last mayor of the former City of Croydon.
In the production of any book, many people play a part, be it financially or the giving
of time with their knowledge and expertise in specialised areas, which concludes
with a quality production - a book that is attractive, informative and accurate.
We believe this book fits the description handsomely, and should bring joy and
pleasant memories to many former and current residents of Croydon. To people who
don't know very much about Croydon, this book will most certainly enlighten them.
This has been a team effort, with many people playing important roles. With all this
in mind, we would like to thank the following:
The Maroondah City Council
The Australian National Library
Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs
Hutchinson Legal of Ringwood
Sue Pitt, Alan Bennett and staff of the Croydon Library
