Melbourne By Night was published by Art In Australia Ltd - Sydney Ure Smith, in 1934.
Photographs by W.L. Lucke-Meyer - with text by Basil Burdett.
The book was published for the Melbourne Centenary in 1934, the centennial celebration of the founding of Melbourne.
The online database: Design & Art Australia Online has a listing - W.L. Lucke-Meyer.
There are photographs in another Ure Smith publication and in another one on shop decor.
The photographs are stunning yet the photographer seems to have appeared and/or was commissioned for works around this time, but then nothing. The online listing explains his departure from Australia.
We have reproduced most of the photographs below - but not the text pages.
If anyone knows any more about this wonderful photographer - please make contact.
