Robert Emeric Tyler

In 1985 Robert Emeric Tyler, a leading London architect, and his nineteen-year-old son, Bobby, travelled by rail and sea to Australia with a view to purchasing a goldmine. Their adventures, misadventures and incredible naivety as they journeyed in remote parts of the Western Australian goldfields were recorded faithfully in letters to ‘My Dear Emma’, Robert’s wife in England.
