Daylight Saving In Tasmania - 'About Time'

Various interpretations of the history of daylight saving have appeared in recent years. Indeed, books have been devoted to the subject, but these have largely not dealt with Australian aspects of the application of daylight saving. In this light I have been asked to make available some research on the origins of  daylight saving and it's use in Tasmania published by me in 1984.
