History and Memoirs of a Mining Town: Launch of a Book about Rapid Bay
You are invited to attend the launch of a book by Des Lord on the history of Rapid Bay. For forty years Rapid Bay was a mining town of national significance. In the early 1940s the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited established a limestone quarry which was vital to the Australian steelmaking industry. This is the story of Rapid Bay’s rise and fall within that industry and of the life and times of those who lived there during the township’s heyday.
