Books
This book looks at the cherished places in the city that time, fashion and progress have swept aside - the old cinemas, the outdated hotels, the Victorian buildings in the wrong place. Organised chronologically from the date of loss, the book looks back at all kinds of Melbourne institutions that have vanished from the city's cultural and architectural life. Included in the book are sites such as the palatial Federal Coffee House, the original location of the Burke and Wills statue, the horse-racing track in Albert Park, old Spencer Street Station, the original grandstand of the MCG, large areas of Victoria Docks, the Fish Market, Western Market and Hegarty's Royal Gymnasium Baths at St.Kilda.
