MISS BARSHAM'S PAINTING BOOK
Elizabeth Barsham taught Adult Education classes in painting and drawing for more than ten years.

It is available on CD, lavishly illustrated and in both html format (for easy reference) and pdf files for printing.
BEFORE THEY BUILT THE BRIDGE
A light-hearted look at the history of Lindisfarne. Not the famous island, but a suburb of Hobart, Tasmania. Elizabeth Barsham's family moved to the Eastern Shore in the early years of the 20th century. Accessible only by ferry from Hobart, Lindisfarne was then a bayside retreat of weekend cottages, orchards and dairy farms with a population of about two hundred. Elizabeth still lives in the farmhouse her grandfather and his brothers built; this book is based on anecdotes of the early days - "before they built the bridge, you know" - collected from elderly family acquaintances.
