Port Fairy: the town that kept its character. A history of Port Fairy 1835-2018 By Marten Syme

Syme’s approach in this book has been to review the published histories and examine activities, people and events in greater detail.  These segments cover contact with the indigenous inhabitants; whaling; the town in the 1840s and 1850s; the commercial dealings of James Atkinson, William Rutledge and their associates; and the shipping business.  In the twentieth century the story has a wider horizon.
