TWO INTERESTING ‘NEW’ ITEMS ADDED TO THE MONASH UNIVERSITY LIBRARY’S RARE BOOKS COLLECTION: The first is a brochure for an indoor golf game:-
Jack O’Hagan’s tribute to Amy Johnson – the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia. She left London 5 May 1930 and arrived Darwin 24 May. Jack O’Hagan was a prolific composer. We have many more of his songs including his tribute to Kingsford Smith, “Kingsford Smith Aussie is proud of you,” (1928), “Our Don Bradman, a snappy fox trot song,” (1930), as well as his “Snake Gully Swagger,” (1939) and his most famous song, “Where the dog sits on the tucker-box.” (1938).
