This book is the compilation of the life stories of Robert and Florence Jeffcott, as originally written by them.  Family pictures spanning a period of over 150
years, and a family tree have been added to enhance and clarify the narrative.

Florence’s story is a delightful and charming tale of her childhood, family history and married life, full of travel and adventure all over the world.  Robert’s is
the detailed history of his work for The General Electric Company in its early days in Australia, and the building of The Calco Chemical Company of Bound
