Canberra Then and Now
Produced for the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, Canberra Then and Now juxtaposes 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. But 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.
