Mini Retro Sydney is a fantastic visual throwback to one of the most famous cities in the world, with images from the 1950s and 60s of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and other landmarks, many of which have never been published before and gathered by collector of vintage photographs, Ian Collis.
Including the Queen's visit to Sydney, the fashion scene, motor cars and transport, hobbies and sports and weekend life, this beautiful book is in a compact size, ideal as a gift or a self-purchase for anyone who remembers a visit from that time or for expats in the UK or elsewhere who want a trip down memory lane.
Ian Collis is a well known rugby league historian - he has one of the largest collections of sporting memorabilia in Australia. His passion for rugby league comes from his father Joseph, who was a pioneer of the North Ryde Junior Rugby League Club in the Balmain Junior League and a former Club president before playing a role in the formation of the Ryde United JRL Club. Ian is currently the Head of Fox Sports Statistics.
