An urban history of Sydney 1920-1950

Spearritt, Peter


Since its foundation Sydney has been the largest city in NSW and for most of its history the largest in Australia. Much of the present fabric of Sydney was created between 1920 and 1950. This thesis traces that growth. Although suburbs developed before the Great War, the twenties proved an unparallelled decade of suburban growth; but enthusiasm for expanding the metropolis soon exceeded interest in improving it.
