More Hidden Hamilton: Further stories of people, place and community


By Ruth Cotton

More Hidden Hamilton is the companion volume to our bestselling Hidden Hamilton. More Hidden Hamilton captures new highlights of Ruth Cotton's popular blog of the same name.

Through personal stories, never-before-seen photographs, and meticulous research, More Hidden Hamilton further explores Hamilton’s development from a 19th century settlement of immigrant miners to the busy multicultural suburb of Newcastle that it is today.
