Melbourne – A City Lost and Found, by Robyn Annear

Robyn Annear wrote a witty and fast paced book about early Melbourne called Bearbrass.

Melbourne - A City Lost and Found deals with all the belle epoque architecture that was pulled down by the firm Whelan the Wreckers.

I enjoyed this book even more than Bearbrass. Annear is a cracking good writer who never bores her reader. You'll weep many a tear though over all the beautiful Melbourne buildings that were demolished, never to be seen again.
