Manuscript - Rollo My Good Dog / by William or Lily Wishart

From the Collection of Kew Historical Society Inc 1 Civic Drive Kew Victoria

Description
15-page hand written manuscript, bound in brown leather as a small book entitled 'Rollo My Good Dog'. The undated manuscript is unsigned and was attributed to William Wishart of 'Noranook', Fernhurst grove, Kew (Vic) when donated to the Kew Historical Society in c.2002. The manuscript is part of a collection of Wishart items owned by Lily Clara Wishart (nee Annear), donated by Rosemary McArthur, the granddaughter of Lily's sister, so it may be that the story was written by her rather than by William Wishart. The entire manuscript can be viewed in the carousel.
