This 224 page hardcover book features more than 200 beautiful photographs from the historic Tyrrell Collection, one of the most significant photographic collections of early Australia. The book vividly showcases urban and rural life in Australia during the years leading up to Federation in 1901. These images will immerse readers in an era when Australia was experiencing rapid social, agricultural and industrial change; a time of great progress and a growing sense of national identity.
Award winning writer Alasdair McGregor’s insightful commentary sheds light on the places, people and activities captured in these special photos and on what these pictures reveal about ordinary people’s lives at the start of the modern era. The book’s especially rich in images of Victorian-era Sydney, a bustling metropolis in the making with many streets and landmarks still recognisable today.
