Garry Richardson

Produces books rich in both historic detail and images


Image of writer Gary Richardson Garry Richardson was born in the Huon Valley in 1950 and has lived in various parts of Tasmania ever since. In 1980 he settled in St Helens, which he calls “the best place in the world”.  After retiring in 2005 (with 39 years at the Forestry Commission behind him) Garry pursued his passion for photography and carried out volunteer work at the St Helens information centre and history room. It was the latter experience that inspired Garry to start writing about the Portland Municipality. While that book is some years from completion, Garry has extended his historical interest to write several other books and has developed a reputation for using his meticulous research skills to produce books rich in historic detail with wonderful historic images. Garry’s latest book is, Sail and Steam: Trading Vessels to Georges Bay 1833-1958.
