In the Shadow of the Prom is a history of the railways and tramways and their importance to the early settlement of south Gippsland from Foster to the Mullungdung forest north-east of Yarram.
It includes extensive details and maps of numerous tramways, which provided transport from the coast before the coming of the South Gippsland Railway. The 2 ft gauge steam operated Goodwood tramway from Port Albert is covered in detail, as is the 2 ft 6 in gauge Victorian Railways Port Welshpool line.
The illustrations, including photographs, maps and diagrams are some of the best to be produced so far in an LRRSA publication.
