Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with colour and black & white plates. 170 pages For a century and a half town criers walked the streets of Australian capital cities, regional centres, and country towns, ringing their bells and conveying their messages. Australia's first town crier was a convict who arrived with the First Fleet, and there have been town criers ever since, throughout the country. Town criers once played an important role in communities without radio and in which literacy was far from universal. Even today town criers continue to amuse and delight the Australian public. This fascinating account is the first to tell their full story.
