The Lost City of Melbourne
Available on SBS On Demand, iTunes
In the 1850s, Melbourne was the fastest growing city in the world. 'They dreamt big, they built big...it was a city jumping out of its skin'. However, the attempted 'modernisation' of Melbourne in the 1950s destroyed much of the city. Our buildings were deemed too Victorian, the opposite of a modern metropolis, and Whelan The Wrecker's demolition blitz began.
