about

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 21st century city of towering skyscrapers, preserving many of the grand buildings from its days as Australia's most populous and prosperous city. Sites include: Flimders Street Station, Swanston Street, Princes Bridge Hotel, Melbourne Town Hall, Queens Bridge, Customs House, Grand Hotel, Flinders Lane, Elizabeth Street, Her Majesty's Theatre, The Cyclorama, Treasury Building, Rialto and Olderfleet, Federal Coffee Palace, Bourke Street, Gog and Magog, General Post Office, State Library of Victoria, Houses of Parliament, Duke of Wellington Hotel, Windsor Hotel, Captain Cook's Cottage, Royal Mint, Royal Exhibition Building, City Baths, University of Melbourne, Flemington, Victoria Docks, the MCG, Government House, Station Pier, Albert Park, and Luna Park.
Heather Chapman and Judith Stillman have lived in Melbourne for most of their adult lives. They are both qualified teachers and held senior positions at the MacRoberston Girls High School, teaching History, Geography, English, and Computer Technology, and have previously worked on texts for secondary school students.
