Julius M. Price, special artist and correspondent for the "Illustrated London News", journeyed through Western Australiain 1895, writing of and sketching the scenes of bush life, and goldmining in the Eastern and Murchison goldfields.

Profusely illustrated with photo's and sketches of the mines and miners, camel teams and mail coaches, aboriginals, settlers and towns in Western Australia in 1895.

This is known to be one of the best reports on the early Western Australian goldfields, and as such this is a facsimile reprint of the original.
