Carlton Forever. "Carlton: A History" by Peter Yule (ed). [review]
When is a suburb not a suburb? When it is an inner-urban locale with a distinctive café culture, its own postcode and football team, but no town hall. And here’s another: how did an Old English word meaning ‘churl’s farm’ come to be assigned to a swanky inner suburb of a major city in the southern hemisphere? These and numerous other questions are answered in "Carlton: A History." This encyclopedic book tells a fascinating story that resonates way beyond its notional suburban boundaries.
