Union Jack (BOOK)




Union Jack (BOOK)

Jack O'Leary and his union — the Australian Railways Union played a major role in bringing corrupt politicians to account, an action that deeply affected Jack’s life and his family. As I began documenting Jack’s story, drawing on crumbling newspapers and bound minute books — each page, recorded in copperplate handwriting, signed by Jack — the characters jostled one another to leap into life. My role would be to ensure they told their tales truthfully.
