Our Chiefly Leader brings word that $31,000 of has convinced local historian and architect Mr Roger Pegrum (any relation to former NCA honcho Anabelle Pegrum?) to revise his 25 year old opus “The Bush Capital”.
It is, we are told, “a concise history of the establishment of Canberra as the Nation’s Capital”.
I’m fascinated to hear what changes have occurred to the story of 1913 in the last 25 years.
Anyway this is part of the Centenary of Canberra hoohaa, so enjoy it.
