An enchanting collection of annotated historical images and contemporary photographs, revealing the change and development that Melbourne has experienced over the years. In 1835, as he walked the sacred grounds of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nations, John Batman wrote in his diary, 'This will be the place for a village.' That small village rapidly grew into the vibrant city of Melbourne. Historical photographs are a window to the past; a time capsule that allows us to walk in the footsteps of our predecessors. Now, this collection enables us to imagine strolling down Bourke Street in 1875, or catching a Collins Street tram in 1910, or walking through the city's inner suburbs many years ago. As well, a series of then-and-now photographs reveals a striking contrast between the Melbourne of yesteryear and the city we are familiar with today. Adapted from the popular 'Old Vintage Melbourne' Instagram account, this book invites you to reminisce about and cherish the important heritage of the city of Melbourne. Turn back the clock and immerse yourself in these captivating chronicles of an incredibly diverse, unique city.
