The classic series from Anova Books, Melbourne Then and Now showcases vintage pictures of the city and compares them with the views as they look today. Part of Melbourne's charm is down to the preservation of grand buildings from its days as Australia's most populous and prosperous city. Victoria's gold rush in the 1850s led to a rapid expansion and allowed the city to build magnificent institutional structures such as Customs House, the City Baths, treasury Building and Her Majesty's theatre. Melbourne: then and Now, shows both the historical and current images of these fabulous landmarks, giving a fascinating insight into Melbourne's development from its Victorian roots through to the 21st Century city of towering skyscrapers. Updated with stunning new photography, this classic book features a wide range of the city's best locations, from the great Flinders Street Station, to Albert Park and St Kilda and is the perfect gift for Melbournites and travelers alike.
