The rapid growth of Bendigo - which is now the third largest city in Victoria - has seldom been rivalled in all history in any country. Originally known as Sandhurst, the city grew quickly out of the Victorian gold rush and became established as a major provincial hub and minor financial centre. With the growth came elements of stability and permanency.
In 1895 'Bendigo and Vicinity' was written to be a 'faithful record' of the town, its services and its people. The book is divided into two sections, the first containing chapters on Bendigo's history, including the the city before gold, various pioneering experiences, the public institutions and buildings, real estate, the gold seekers, the goldfields. This section contains photos of hundreds of beautiful photographs in and around Bendigo, or buildings, parks, churches, fountains and more.
The second half of the book contains biographies of people in Bendigo's history as well as histories of important companies and firms that helped to establish Bendigo. Each of these includes a photograph.
This book provides an valuable resource for those interested in the history of Bendigo region and the people who established it.
