A Pictorial History Manly covers the history of the municipality from Aboriginal settlement to modern times. Manly has always been the beauty spot of Sydney where millions of visitors have travelled to get away from city life.
‘Seven miles from Sydney and a thousand miles from care’. These two editions of the history of Manly in 200 black and white photographs, many never before published, cover all the suburbs of the area and give a delightful remembrance of tourists from the 1850s onwards. It is a lovely nostalgic book full of romantic images and a history of one of our city’s best known areas.
