Richly illustrated, this fascinating panorama explores architectural gems from Brisbane's first settlement to the beginning of World War II. More than 300 sketches, many drawn by the author, show the details of landmark churches, government buildings, and commercial structures. Brisbane's historic hotels are given particular attention because they are still in operation and provide excellent examples of historic buildings that have evolved to meet new demands. Profiles of the architects and firms that shaped the city include George Addison, Robin Dods, Richard Gailey, Hall and Prentice, Lange Powell, Andrea Stombuco, and F. D. G. Stanley.
