Abstract

The first decade after World War II saw Tasmania embark upon a
quarter of a century of change and development, a period which
would witness a transformation in the state's economy and social
character. In the immediate postwar period Tasmania was
experiencing an economic slump, with the winding down of war
manufacturing, a decreased demand for goods, and severe shortage
of materials. The light on the horizon was Tasmania's potential
industrial revolution, an expansion of secondary industry, the key
to which would be the exploitation of Tasmania's abundant water
supply. Tasmania's industrial boom would be led by a relatively
small number of firms, such as the Electrolytic Zinc Company and
Associated Pulp and Paper Mills, supplied with cheap, bulk power
through the state's hydro-electric scheme.
