"It is usual to say that the photographer somehow freezes a moment in time. But Walker's photographs actually set time in motion, inviting us to see, beneath the unmade road, the Wurundjeri lands whose owners still remember how things were before this bizarre intrusion. And they prompt us to recognise how the city has both changed and endured in the years since each photo was taken -- how the place in the picture is both familiar and surprising." -- Michael Cathcart

Focusing on social and cultural themes, they reveal a decade full of contradictions which belie the common, simplistic accounts of the time. Ranging from the education of the young Barry Humphries to the idea of an Australian 'identity' in the lead-up to the 1956 Olympics, these essays also include the personal recollections of three leading historians, providing a lively and critical insight into the Australia of the period."
