The booklets from the series "The Keys to Canberra's History" are now available for download. The Canberra centenary website (here) has just released a series of five history booklets which explore Canberra's early history as the national capital. The booklets were written by three well-known and respected Canberra historians who fill significant gaps in Canberra's early history.
