Making maps ‘Speak’: E-Mapping performance on Western Australia’s Coolgardie Goldfield, 1894–98
*Subscription may be required
On the 'calm moonlight night' of 17 March 1897, Italian-born 'barrowman' and diarist James Balzano joined some 300 fellow 'diggers' in a circle around a bonfire near Dick Egan's tent at Red Hill Camp, now Kambalda East, on Western Australia's Coolgardie Goldfield for a St Patrick's Day concert given by residents of the camp. Balzano records that he found the cobbled-together programme of songs, recitations, solo instrumentals, and a 'Step Dance on a meat box' to be 'very good indeed'.
