Summary

"The RTA Environment Branch established an Oral History Program in 1997, to investigate various topics of historical interest. NSW vehicular ferries was the second thematic oral history to be undertaken ... The major output of the project was over 40 hours of taped interviews with people involved in all aspects of the ferries - their administration, design, construction, maintenance and operation - as well as those for whom the ferry played an important part in their local community."--P. [4] of booklet.
