“Every photograph and memory reproduced here is a window to the Melbourne I remember.
And the Melbourne I forget.
There is golden nostalgia within these pages. ” Steve Vizard
Melbourne Remember When is full of beautifully sentimental memories – all contributed by over 200 regular readers and followers of my Facebook pages ‘Melbourne Remember When’ and ‘Australia Remember When’.
Childhood memories of the elephant rides at Melbourne Zoo, the Waltons Department Store on Bourke Street, the Palais Theatre, the Palais de Danse, the Melbourne Cup, Buckley & Nunn, the ladies’ lounge, the Block Arcade and so much more …
Melbourne Remember When is unashamedly nostalgic, filled with photos and recollections, lost treasures of a bygone era. It’s a pictorial reminder of a different generation, of beach pavilions and ballrooms, of stately old buildings, department stores that are long gone, old trams and trains, legendary personalities, magic moments in sport, serials on the wireless, black and white TV, family cars and holidays, rock’n’roll music and so much more!
Looking at the photos and stories on these pages, there is a sense of simpler days and less troubled times.
Come and share this walk down memory lane and rediscover and celebrate your life’s journey in the Melbourne of your youth.
