Abstract

Resident in Hamley Bridge from August 1913 to January 1919, Ethel, wife of Dr Arthur James (Artie) Hanrahan, wrote regularly to her mother in Dublin. Hamley Bridge, situated close to the junction of the Rivers Light and
Gilbert forty-nine miles north of Adelaide, was also a break-of-gauge railway town. The gauge meeting point resulted in numbers of railway employee residents but, at the same time, produced significant freight shipping disadvantages.
