Backing onto the Yarra in the heart of Melbourne city, Flinders Street Station covers two whole city blocks - from Flinders to Queen Streets- and serves the entire Melbourne metropolitan network. The Art Nouveau building, completed in 1909, is the Melbourne landmark, and meeting 'under the clocks' on the corner of Flinders and Swanston streets is a ritual any Melburnian will understand. For almost all of those who pass through the arches on any given day, though, the facade and public spaces of this historical building are all we will ever see.
Jenny Davies takes a deep dive into the fascinating social and architectural history of our most famous local landmark. 'Beyond the Facade: Flinders Street More Than Just a Railway Station' invites the reader to explore the many and varied uses this interesting building has embraced over its century of operation.
