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