Library bound!George Burrell 1854birthLondon-migrated to Aus.-Died1872?

Gold mining was popular then.Shakespeare family owned a gold company their.Panning for gold.In1858Installing lines for telegraph in Austrailia was a major accomplishment.Zin1872 Austrailia was linked to rest of world for the first time.Couldn't you imagine how excited they were.Doesn't that remind us of our computer era.
I have a feeling I'll find what I need at the library!
