A book about the birth, life and loss of an Australian community.  Yallourn was designed in the 1920s as a ‘garden town laid on on hygienic and aesthetic principles’. It became a thriving and close knit community, home to several generations of State Electricity Commission workers and their families.  By the 1960s it was surplus to requirements – an area to be ‘cleared.’ The Save Yallourn Campaign was long and bitterly fought but the residents’ efforts were in vain.  Yet Yallourn still exists vividly in memory and imagination. With wonderful historic black and white photographs.
