This second Tasmanian Cyclopedia is a wide ranging historical and biographical overview of the state in 1931 - the people, towns, industries, professional, commercial and social institutions and much more. The Cyclopedia includes thousands of illustrations, the larger number of these being portraits of those whose biographies are included. These are not just the rich and famous, but include a high percentage of the ordinary citizens in each community. It's an invaluable genealogy tool for anyone searching their family history or building a family tree.
