The city of Melbourne, the most populous in the south-eastern Australian state of Victoria, is renowned for its coffee and cricket. However, boasting a rich history, and full of decadent Victorian architecture, a thriving arts industry and high quality restaurants, it’s no wonder Melbourne is considered one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Retro Melbourne takes readers on a colourful and nostalgic walk down memory lane. Showcasing rare photographs of one of Australia’s most beautiful cities, and featuring iconic landmarks such a Parliament House, Melbourne Boys High and Collins Street, photographer Fred Mitchell provides a fantastic visual throwback to the last century.

This breathtaking collection of photographs will provide readers with an insight into the architecture, fashion and popular pastimes of Melburnians, dating back to the 1950’s era. With added information providing the context of each image, readers will board the metaphorical tram to a simpler time… in living colour.

First stop Flinders Street, then straight on to Wodonga. All aboard Retro Melbourne.
