Our QBD exclusive title, Remembering Melbourne, was officially launched on Tuesday night! A special collaboration between the Royal Historical Society of Victoria & QBD. This spectacular pictorial collection showcases the early history of one the world’s most livable cities.
Melbourne has been reshaped since the 1950s, with the glass tower revolution forever changing its face. Remembering Melbourne 1850–1960, captures what has been lost and forgotten, concealed and overlaid, demolished and reborn, in the transformation of a city’s buildings and streetscapes.
Based on the efforts of over 100 volunteers, Remembering Melbourne reveals in over 700 photographs the face of fourteen of Melbourne’s finest streets, its lanes and little streets, its parks and gardens, and of course the Yarra. Besides this, it presents key buildings and streetscapes of twenty of Melbourne’s iconic suburbs.
The ultimate conversation starter, this lush coffee table book makes a perfect Christmas gift for that special someone (or for yourself!).
