Our City: 175 Years in 175 Objects



Product Description

Established in 1842, the Council of the City of Sydney is the oldest municipal council in New South Wales.

Our City: 175 Years in 175 Objects presents the evolution of Sydney under the council's leadership.

The 175 objects featured are drawn from the incredibly rich resource of the City's collection of archives and civic memorabilia, stretching back to 1842. Illustrated in full colour, the history of Sydney is revealed through the stories of some remarkable objects: plans, furniture, letters, photographs, trophies and files.

This is a book to dip into to discover something new about Sydney's history, including the challenges faced by the council in shaping Sydney and its achievements.
