From the Strand to Boorooloola : M. H. Ellis as Pioneer Motorist Andrew Moore , 2004 single work criticism
— Appears in: Journal of Australian Studies , no. 81 2004; (p. 83-92, notes 213-215)
Concentrating on Ellis's two accounts of road trips with Francis Birtles, this article explores 'some of the social and political context of motoring and car culture in the inter-war period. It also shows how Ellis's continuing obsessions, his conservative politics and his personality flaws ... were reflected in his motoring exploits.' (p.86)
