This remarkable account of popular entertainment between 1789 and 1861 is the recently discovered work of two Sydney Journalists researching at the beginning of the century. The book gives a picture, in more vivid detail than any other published to date, of the wealth and cosmopolitan nature of Sydney society. If anyone believes that NSW was a barren outpost in the 19th century, this book will persuade them otherwise.
