Building Sydney’s History

Building Sydney’s History

In Building Sydney’s History Derek and Julia Parker select some of the city’s iconic buildings to illustrate the development of the city – from Cadman’s Cottage, the earliest domestic building to survive, through civic buildings, mansions, art deco masterpieces and Victorian extravaganzas to the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. They took over seven hundred photographs from which to select the illustrations for the book, and each selection has a short essay explaining the historical and architectural significance of the building shown.
