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.

We have almost no information about 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, was commissioned for works around this time, but then nothing...

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.

The Victorian State Library has an online full version of this book - all pages - click here
