    A mostly pictorial book with brief comments outlining the history of each building and its current usage A nice light book good for the coffee table Doesn’t delve too deeply into things but whets the appetite to do soI enjoyed learning the dates that buildings were established and their original purposes It would have been good to have the exact addresses for each building stated Some were but the majority were very vague as to location It’s so sad to see some of the beautiful buildings that no longer stand The Federal Coffee Palace on Collins Street was breathtaking in its beauty but was knocked down in the 1970's and replaced with a modern monstrosity We have to preserve these incredible historic structures Today's buildings are so artless and lacking in style in comparison More interior photographs would have been nice Surely it wouldn't have been hard to get better contemporary photos

    An interesting pictorial book with good information on the history of Melbourne its buildings of the better known sites in a 'then and now' format A good memory lane book for the elderly a look and learn book for the new comer or simply a coffee table adornmentIt is recognised the book is light reading and was not designed as an architectural catalogue of Melbourne but it does have some easily avoided annoying features especially for the tourist or new comer The addresses are regularly not given the name of the owneroccupier not provided the 'new' photographs are not dated
