How it works


Macmillan, 1979,  illustrated, 12 pages, 215 x 3mm, some slight edgeware to dustjacket, otherwise Very Good.

This book uncovers buildings, landmarks and structures that have been obliterated in the city's constant cycle of destruction and re-birth. A lot of the past is now gone and along with it an identity.

This book is a personal sampling of that which has been lost by a renowned architectual critic and journalist.

The author contributed the text to the standard illustrated history, 'Parktown, 1892-1972'.

 Inexplicably, Spike Milligan has written the foreword!!
