Picturesque travel No. 3, 1913

"The magnificent city of Melbourne, second only to Sydney in population is a city of which Australians always speak with pride. It is splendidly laid out, beautifully flanked with parl-lands and garden-spaces, and contains among other notable buildings, the finest Parliament House in Australia. The present population of Melbourne and suburbs is about 700,000, and though it has behind it a territory only one-fourth the area of New South Wales, its resources are imposing, and its shipping and manufactures almost rival those of Sydney." More information
