Item Description: The Author, Lithgow, NSW, Australia, 1998. Quarto paperback, 76pp., b&w illustrations. New. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. The Mount Walker Stockade was the largest and most complex of the convict stockades established in the 1830s. Convict iron gangs were moved here from Mt Victoria after difficulties at Mt Victoria Pass had been overcome and the road made. Mt Walker Stockade had many auxiliary buildings and accommodated up to 500 people at its peak: convicts, military guards, surveyors and other officials. The stockade enclosure, built on the bank of the Cox's River and had rows of convict huts with skillion roofs, elevated security lanterns and flogging triangles. The convicts spent their days in chains while they worked on the roads, and were then locked up at night. These were some of the hardest criminals, repeat offenders who were considered as a scourge on society, unsuitable even to be assigned to a land owner. They worked in a range of three miles in either direction from the stockade. In the morning they would be handed their tools and marched to their place of work under supervision of soldiers. In the evening, after a day of back-breaking labour, they would be marched back and locked up again.There were two classes of convict who worked on the roads. The more trusted among them worked as carpenters or stonemasons further away, living in huts along the road and working free of irons. Ultimately, through good behaviour and hard work in these trying conditions, many of these convicts would earn their freedom. Along with the stockade, there were overseers' huts, a guard house, barracks, sergeants quarters and store, military officers quarters, two hospitals, a cooking hut, blacksmith shops, a butcher's shop and a baker's shop.There is a unique artist's impression of Mt Walker Stockade, attributed to Major General James Pattison Cockburn, 1832. It shows the high slab wall surrounding the rows of convict huts, and an array of small buildings covered by the haze of smoke from their chimneys. A military guard keeps watch and a convict work gang plods around a bend in the Mitchell's Road under construction. This painting is now in the Mitchell Library. Convicts stationed on this site built bridges over the Cox's River and Farmer's Creek, and constructed road buttresses and several difficult road cuttings up to 1835. The stockade was also used as an administrative centre with a weekly Court session. In its final years, the site was mainly used as medical, stores and administration facility. In this book, Ollie Leckbandt documents a wide range of historical relics found on this site including: coins, buttons, insignia, buckles, name plates, musket rounds, thimbles, pieces of spoons, knives and forks, and tool fragments. There are also many site photographs, maps and historical notes about the stockade. Bookseller Inventory # 79104

Item Description: The Author, Lithgow, 2002. Quarto paperback, 76pp., b&w illustrations. New. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. This book describes the historical remains and artefacts found along the Old Bathurst Road. This includes Mount Kirkley Stockade - a relatively small workcamp though vital to colonial road building; Hassan Walls and the Mt Victoria and Mt Walker stockades. These stockades housed convict road gangs and their regiment guards building the Mitchells Road and bridges over the Cox's River in the 1830s. The author notes that the last recorded colonial regiments in the Lithgow district were the 80th and 28th at Hassans Walls, in 1839 and 1840 respectively. Major Mitchell's road from Mount Victoria Pass to Bathurst, is rich in colonial history, particularly old road works; convict stockades; military stations; road camps and inns. All of these were an integral part of colonising the west. As Ollie Leckbandt writes, "Not all history is contained in library records; it is also concealed in the ground." Finds of coins, military buttons and domestic buttons, musket rounds, nails and brass name plates provide a sense of this hidden record. A wide variety of historical documents give insight into the colonial lives of the protagonists at these stockades, who have left behind their nameplates in the earth. Bookseller Inventory # 74927

Item Description: The Author, Lithgow NSW, 2015. Quarto; paperback; 61pp., many full-colour and black & white illustrations. New. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. This is the engaging story of the Leckbandt family, Marie, Lou and Ollie, who came as migrants to Australia following the Second World War. Marie - whose husband was reported missing in action in 1944 - and Ollie, her youngest son, followed seventeen year old Lou's earlier migration from Estonia, in 1948. The book details experiences, hardships and the adventures of the family who lived initially in simple camps, hostels, and workers quarters on farms and vineyards and describes the long working hours; pay and the community of other migrants; learning a new language and interactions with Australians. The biography is well illustrated with images from the family's life at Cowra and Lithgow. This appealing history presents a personal and local history and was published in the year following Lou's death in 2014.

Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. This book describes the historical remains and artefacts found at stockade sites along the old Mitchell's Road to Bathurst.

Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. In Ollie's previous volumes he has outlined the locations and histories of the various convict and military stockades scattered across the Lithgow landscape. In this book, he examines the impact across the region of the creation and development of residential estates, infrastructural relocations and roadworks, particularly upon the heritage sites involved. He compares the state regulations which define objects removed from the earth - for example decimal coins dating from 1966, some of which are still in circulation - as of heritage value, but which completely ignore structures and foundation works which comprised Nineteenth Century beachheads of early Settlement occupation. As usual, many intriguing and pertinent colour photographs help underscore his compelling case. Bookseller Inventory # 79942
