Local and regional histories provide an insight into the past circumstances and environment of small communities. They give the historian an understanding of how people of the time lived their day-to-day lives. They are of particular interest to family historians who may have ancestors living in the particular community as while they may find no mention of particular names, they will certainly come across issues and events that they certainly experienced.
This publication commemorates the centenary of local government in the district and outlines the history since settlement to 1982 of the region managed by the
Drummoyne Council in 1982. It contains a number of useful photographs and maps of the area that are the property of the Council and would normally be difficult to access.

- Early settlers in the district
- Mayors, Aldermen and Town Clerks of Drummoyne and Five Dock
