Alexander Williamson Dobbie lived life to the full. He managed to achieve so much in the time he was alive. Born in Scotland in 1843, he emigrated to Australia with his family when he was 8, and grew up in Adelaide.
Always ambitious, he started his own business by the age of 19 and developed a successful foundry and retail shop. With more interests than just retail, he was also a brassfounder, merchant, inventor, photographer, pianist, optician, astronomer, author and gardener ...
Travel was also a passion, and Rough Notes of a Traveller is his account of one of his journeys, in which he visits England, Scotland, France, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Greece, Egypt and Ceylon. He gives his impression, his encounters, the scenery of the places he visited, the travel, the people and the food.
Here is a unique look at an individual's view of many countries as they were back in 1889. Includes many illustrations and handwritten notes and dates at the end of the book on Dobbie, his wife and children.
