Collins: The Story of Australia's Premier Street by Judith Buckrich

As I've said previously, it's not often that Australian books feature in the newspaper outside of the book review pages. Today in "The Age", Judith Buckrich's new book Collins: The Story of Australia's Premier Street, is given a look over by Carolyn Webb. "Dr Buckrich has written a 'biography' of Collins Street, which she says retains its more-glamorous-sister status over Bourke. "She dares to subtitle the book 'Australia's Premier Street'. "'It's still the only street where you can really sense the smell of money very clearly,' she said yesterday at the book launch. 'And it still is the most architecturally and culturally interesting street in Australia.'" Oh, okay: shopping and architecture. That explains it then.
