Summary Since its streets first came to life with a clatter of hooves and rumble of carriage wheels, Carlton has become well known for its diverse ethnic and social character. From the bourgeoisie in the elegant terraces of Drummond Street to the street urchins and prostitutes of a once-seedy Bouverie Street, from student radicals at the University of Melbourne to the tailors and restaurateurs of Lygon, its residents have made the suburb an exciting and distinctive quarter of Melbourne.

Some of the city's greatest political and social controversies were played out here, including the eight-hour-day campaign of the 1850s and the Carlton Association's fight against the Housing Commission in the 1960s. Carlton's passion overflows onto the football field in support of one of Victoria's most successful football clubs.

A celebration of one of the most fascinating suburbs in Melbourne, Carlton: A History richly evokes the vibrant and colourful character of Carlton, today and yesterday.
