Bob's Railway: 1880s and 1890s. The Life and Times of Bob the Railway Dog

Bob the Railway Dog (Peterbrough History Group SA Inc)

As the spiritual home of Bob the Railway Dog, Peterborough will have first look at the newly-released book that comprehensively examines about 100 archival newspaper items. Author John Wilson will launch Bob’s Railway, a book which tracks Bob’s travels during the 1880s and 1890s. It chronicles troubled times of the colonial government and the railways department which was dysfunctional. CC Kingston was Attorney-General, and Joseph Henry Smith was the Chairman of the Board of Railway Commissioners. They couldn’t agree, which left Kingston ranting with a loaded pistol in Victoria Square.
