content on this website is indebted to many sources and attribution is
given where possible. In particular, it draws on the biography of PL
Travers by Valerie Lawson Out of the Sky She Came (1999) and
conversations with a longtime friend of P.L. Travers, Patricia Feltham.
But no inference should be drawn that this or any other attribution
indicates endorsement by those individuals of the website's content. In
particular, neither individual is making the claim that Bowral is the
birthplace of Mary Poppins. Responsibility for that claim and all the
website content is accepted by Paul McShane, Convenor - BookTown
