From the cover: “This book is a new edition of an established favourite, a portrait by Cedric Emanuel, one of Australia’s best-loved artists, of his hometown, Sydney. The volume has been completely updated to show the unending growth of the great city, a growth now happily tempered by the preservation of historic public buildings, churches, and terrace homes which form such a valuable part of our heritage and which continue to delight Sydneysiders and overseas visitors alike: all are drawn with the care, technique, and attention to detail which is the hallmark of Cedric Emanuel’s work.”
