The 100 years of Tattersall’s involves not only the “rag to riches” story of founder George Adams, but also the epic struggles of Tattersall’s against State and Federal Government attempts to outlaw the enterprise.The enactment of anti-gambling legislation and the application of Commonwealth Postal Bans against the Estate would have beaten most ventures. It is fascinating story of the survival of one of two most famous lotteries in the world (the other is the Irish Sweep). ” The Luck of the Draw” is lavishly illustrated with more than 100 illustrations, including many in colour. #0421 Oversized item.
