Building Brisbane's History takes fifty of Brisbane's most notable buildings and structures and tells the stories of how, when and why they were built, and includes stories of what has happened in and to them since construction. The collection ranges across a wide selection of structures, including the Story Bridge, Newstead House, Brisbane's quirky traffic signal boxes and its prettiest ferry terminals. Each building's story is a fascinating insight into the whys and wherefores of its history, and each chapter can be dipped into and read as a stand alone piece. The collection, however, also serves to present a wonderful new perspective on Brisbane's history: how and why the city physically developed the way it did. Richly illustrated in full contemporary colour (by local photographer and author Dianne McLay) and historic black and white photography, this a book that every Brisbane household will want to own.
