The classic series from Pavilion Books, Melbourne Then and Now showcases vintage pictures of the city and compares them with the views as they look today. Melbourne has often been considered the most English of Australia's various capital cities, yet it was the only one to be founded by a native-born Australian. In 1835 John Batman sailed from Port Philip and up the Yarra River to establish his new village. By the 1850s the discovery of gold had led to a rapid expansion and the city now had the financial muscle to build grand institutional structures. Melbourne Then and Now gives a fascinating insight into the development of the city from its Victorian roots through to the twenty-first century city of towering skyscrapers, preserving many of the grand buildings from its days as Australia's most populous and prosperous city.
