The Society is very grateful to two authors who have donated copies of their books for resale by us. They are Robert Green, who wrote the history of the pioneering Box Hill to Doncaster tramway, and the late Life Member Marjorie Morgan, co-author of Prelude to Heidelberg, the history of the Box Hill Artists Camp.
