OLD VINTAGE MELBOURNE
In 1835, as he walked the sacred grounds of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nations, John Batman wrote in his diary, This will be the place for a village. That small village rapidly grew into the vibrant city of Melbourne. Historical photographs are a window to the past; a time capsule that allows us to walk in the footsteps of our predecessors. Now, this collection enables us to imagine strolling down Bourke Street in 1875, or catching a Collins Street tram in 1910, or walking through the city’s inner suburbs many years ago.
