Engineering Heritage Australia Newsletters

From Engineering Heritage Australia

The EHA Newsletters were commenced in October 1992. The opening paragraph in the first Newsletter by the Hon. Editor Tony Moulds states:

Welcome to this Newsletter. It aims to provide a means of communication between all persons and organisations who have an interest in Engineering heritage, and to cover the full breadth and depth of this subject across all engineering disciplines, including the history of engineers, engineering and technology, the conservation of physical or documentary evidence of this history, the restoration or reconstruction of past works, and the interpretation of these to engineers and to the general public.

Between October 1992 and October 2012 there were a total of 26 Newsletters, copies of which are available for download from the table below.
