Champagne From Six to Six by Peter M. Shea

In mid-19th-century Australia, like its counterparts in California and Chile, there was a focus on the rush for gold. Given the sobriquet "diggers," men arrived in the tens of thousands from all points of the globe. In often remote bush settings, makeshift towns quickly sprouted in the foothills, valleys, and plateaus leading to the Blue Mountains and the Australian Alps. Focusing on the counterplay with this influx of fortune seekers, there also emerged a nascent global entertainment industry. Champagne from Six to Six is a short history of the pastimes of these diggers on the gold fields at Beechworth and the Ovens of northeast Victoria. This illustrated text, based on eyewitness accounts, newspaper reports, and histories written on this period, gives a lively recreation of what were initially the findings of an academic research project, now available to readers everywhere. Music, dance, sports, theater, opera, magic shows, trapeze artists, wax works, the circus, and even the first types of "moving pictures" toured these diggings Author Bio: Author Peter M. Shea followed the adage "Go West, young man, go West" and now, an aspiring "Gentleman of Leisure Patron of the Arts," he appreciates good food, fine music, and wines (champagne, of course!). He currently lives between the West Coast of California and Melbourne, Australia. He is working on a number of projects, one of which is a book with the preliminary title, Before I Become Invisible - Pastiches of a Fortunate Life.

I found this book of interest in that it was a social history of the emerging global entertainment industry, suitable for Australian secondary history with good tertiary level resources for further research - it should be in every Australian school library and local libraries as well as in Austalian collections overseas....
