Australia Rigby 1978 0727008919 / 9780727008916 1st Edition Hard Cover Good Good 12mo 
55 pages including drawings. Western Australia was founded on 17 June 1829 when the Swan River Colony was proclaimed at Arthur Head, Fremantle. Throughout the 150 years of settlement many fine buildings as well as many humble structures have been erected, each typical of the period in which they were constructed. Many of these buildings are still standing, and the National Trust has been able to acquire many splendid examples to preserve for the enjoyment of present and future generations. National Trust properties are spread throughout the State and range from a small reserve of 20 metres surrounding a sealers' oven at Waychinicup Inlet to the ambitious project of preserving a complete hamlet at Greenough Flats just south of Geraldton. The Old Farm at Strawberry Hill, Albany, was erected for the visit of Governor Stirling in 1831 and now fully restored and authentically furnished, is a popular tourist attraction. St Bartholomew’s Church stands within the old East Perth cemetery, surrounded by the graves of early colonists. Last used in 1916, the church fell into disrepair but has now been restored and refurnished. Wonnerup House, north of Busselton, was erected on a grant of land to George Layman in 1834. The house, with its luxuriant gardens, is a ?ne example of a colonial homestead. These and many other historic buildings are described in Alexandra Hasluck's detailed and informative text and are illustrated by Ross Shardlow’s charmingly evocative drawings. This book is a valuable portrayal of the heritage left to us by the pioneers of Western Australia.

Urban Living: The Individual in the City, Walmsley, D. J.
9 Walmsley, D. J. Urban Living: The Individual in the City
Australia Longman 1988 058230167X / 9780582301672 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xiv + 204 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. This book examines the ways in which individuals cope with city living. Beginning with a brief outline of the growth and changing nature of cities, the author moves on to explore four key issues: how individuals come to know the city in which they live; how they feel about the urban environment; the extent of their travel patterns within the city; and the influence of place on behaviour. In seeking to cover these issues Dr Walmsley addresses a number of important questions. How well do people know the urban environment? How do they find their way around? What makes a city memorable? How do people feel about the city in which they live? Are there basic human needs that city living is expected to fulfill? Why do city dwellers develop a sense of emotional attachment to particular places? What makes certain urban landscapes appealing? How extensive are people’s travel patterns within the city? To what extent are urban dwellers territorial animals? What effect does the character of the local neighbourhood have on its inhabitants? Does high-density living create stress and social problems? Do certain types of urban environment foster crime, delinquency and vandalism? In considering these questions the book deals both with research in ‘mainstream’ social science and with newer initiatives that are commonly described as humanistic. Implicit in the text, therefore, is the view that a great many different approaches can provide insights into the behaviour of city dwellers, and that students of urban affairs, and practitioners of urban planning, need to take stock of all these approaches. D. J. Walmsley is Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of New England, Australia.
