“In the last ten years North Sydney has developed rapidly as a commercial centre.  Daily, bulldozers rip at the rock and workmen warm themselves by demolishers’ fires.  The old is going to make way for the new.  This book is a visitors’ guide to places of interest in the area.  In time it may serve as a nostalgic comment on what has been lost, for some of the buildings mentioned are associated with names in history books; others document a broader social history.”
