Written by the Rev. Jas Steele, in 1915, this book is a detailed history of the town of Windsor and the Hawkesbury area on the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales. The book covers Windsor's history from exploration starting in 1788 and the first settlers in 1794 through to 'the present' (1915).

It was first published as a series of articles in the 'Windsor and Richmond Gazette' between August 1914 and February 1915. As a result of the public interest and input this created, the text was revised and added to in order to make it more accurate and inclusive.

The book includes a comprehensive record of Windsor and the surrounding region including information on pioneer families, street name origins, Old Government House, churches, cemeteries, schools, judiciary, government institutions, Hawkesbury river, bridges, weather, professions, newspaper, horse racing etc. as well as a chapter on the future. It also includes many photographs of people, places and events.

'As years roll on it [Early Days of Windsor] will certainly become an invaluable work of reference on all matters connected with the district' JOHN TEBBUTT F.R.A.S. (1915)

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book, bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
