Striking it Rich: Melbourne’s 19th Century ‘Boom’ style Architecture with Max Nankervis
25 January @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Max is a U3A Melbourne City tutor running a local history course and architectural walking tours.
Asa Briggs in Victorian Cities nominated Melbourne as one of the key Victorian cities of the world and it still retains many of the gorgeous buildings which made it so notable. This session will take you on a trip through the evolution of this flamboyant architectural style, and set it in the context of the economic boom following the Gold Rush of the 1850s.
