Description

The rich diversity and social heritage of Carlton, one of Melbourne's oldest suburbs, is revealed in this collection of essays. This volume includes more than 40 contributions, such as David Dunstan's tracing of the building of the Royal Exhibition building, Lionel Frost's history of Carlton's successful football club, the building of the elegant terraces of Drummond Street by Miles Lewis, and stories from Arnold Zable's 1950s childhood. The major institutions and architecturally significant buildings that characterize the suburb are illuminated throughout the writings that are accompanied by elegant and revealing illustrations. Beautifully capturing a fascinating history, this text evokes the many influences that has made Carlton a vibrant and influential suburb.
