Safe Passage: The Lighthouses of Tasmania by Garry Richardson | HB
The history of Tasmania's 14 manned lighthouses...and the ships that supplied them.
Safe Passage is the most comprehensive book written on Tasmania’s 14 manned lighthouses, and the first compiled since they were all de-manned.
The lighthouse keepers could not have survived without the supply ships that serviced the lights. The ships played a crucial role in keeping the lights operational.
Historical letters and reports reveal just how hard the keepers’ lives were, even in recent times.
Containing nearly 700 images and charts – many sourced from previously unpublished keepers’ family collections – Safe Passage brings to life the era of manned lighthouses in Tasmania.
