A fascinating compilation of vintage Brisbane images matched against the same viewpoint today, with text from a local Brisbane historian. Brisbane is a vibrant, fast-changing city. As the city has grown across the last century and a half many of the classic Victorian buildings have been preserved to blend with the modern cityscape - other, less prestigious developments, have fallen by the wayside. Brisbane Then and Now shows how the high-rises have sprung up to form a dramatic backdrop to its older buildings, plus some sites that have disappeared, or changed beyond all recognition. Using archive photos from the late nineteenth century through to the 1950s, Brisbane Then and Now matches historical views with their twenty-first century equivalents. Sites include: The Treasury Building, Victoria Building, Floods of 1893, General Post Office, National Bank Building, Mooney Fountain, Customs House, Queens Wharf, Bellevue Hotel, The Mansions, Queensland Club, Botanic Gardens, City Hall, Anzac Square, St John's cathedral, Trades Hall, Wickham Terrace and The Gabba.
