Gaby, Captain James.


Antipodean, Sydney, NSW. 1st.ed., 1974. 252 pp., cold. plate. D.j., 22 x 14cm. V.G. A narrative based on fact describing the day-to-day working life of a wharf foreman who rises to become a manager of his company on the Sydney waterfront. A story told with humour and frankness, it catalogues thirty-two of the most turbulent and changing years of labour's history on the wharves of Sydney, 1922 to 1954. Hailed as a "fascinating document" the book is illustrated with a fine coloured reproduction of Union Line's S/S WANAKA, a ship featuring prominently in this true story.
