Canberra: then and now

Geoff Page

Produced for the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, Canberra: then and now compares images of early Canberra with commissioned photography of the same places today. This anniversary publication includes a history of the land before the city was built, a memoir and, accompanying the photographs, recollections from numerous residents and some poems. The main attraction is a visual one: the ‘then and now’ photographs showing the same locations and how they have changed over time. The memoir text and poems are by well-­known author and poet Geoff Page, who has a long connection with Canberra and has seen it from many aspects—as a teacher, as a contributor to its cultural life and also simply as someone who now calls Canberra home.

Soft cover, photographs, 124 pages.
