(55 pages)

1908 saw the first issue of the 'Bendigonian Annual' published, and claims to be a 'mine of information', and it really is.

It contains a record of events and happenings throughout 1908, locally, statewide and internationally in a chronological list of the year. Also included is a 'calendar of events'. This is a chronological list of the entire year together with anecdotes related to the date. Details such as when the Theatre Royal opened, when the Echuca railway washed away, when the Miners Association was established and when S. Parker's shop was burnt down. There are details of when some people arrived in Bendigo, as well as when many died, when noted 'nuggets' of gold were found, various floods and fires, the date of when exhibitions were opened, as well as public buildings ...

The chronology and calendar take up almost half of the book. The rest is made up of various articles and stories, including one on the industries of Bendigo, and another on Bendigo Potteries. There is an article on 'Breadmaking: The Present Day Process', as well as on 'How Jam is Made'. Includes many photographs of people and buildings.

A useful reference guide to those with an interest in the region.
