Remember dropping into the Coles Cafeteria on Bourke Street for a feast of rashers, sausages and mash - with gravy? Catching a ‘red rattler’ into the city? Eating a hot jam doughnut from the American Doughnut Kitchen van at the Queen Vic markets?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, chances are you are part of the Melbourne Baby Boomer generation. Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane with Bob Byrne as he transports us back in time to a Melbourne that has long since disappeared, the streets and buildings, the personalities and landmarks, the traditions and the times.
"Each photograph in this wonderful collection powerfully evokes half-remembered truths, half-faded yearnings, at the same time tempting us with a honey-sweet nostalgia for places and times that can never be found again." — Steve Vizard
