Perth has grown on the back of a series of resource booms from a late Victorian gold town into a dynamic and progressive city.
Growth has often included an appreciation of the new over the old. Consequently, many old buildings have been destroyed.
Using rare archival photographs, mainly from the State Library of Western Australia, Richard Offen has provided the reader with a glimpse of Perth's former glory. Images include Josie's Cottage, First Government House, Padbury Building, Royal Perth Yacht Club, Regent Cinema, Mitchell Building, trams, steam trains, William Street Level Crossing, Esplanade Hotel, Emu Brewery, Dalkeith Hot Pool, Coolbaroo Club, the Christian Brothers School and the East Perth Gasometer and many more.
