Kingclear Books is a small but diverse Sydney based publisher. Our catalogue covers a wide spectrum from photographic histories of Sydney suburbs to health books, crime books and tourist books.
Pictorial History Manly covers the history of the municipality from
Aboriginal settlement to modern times. Manly has always been the beauty spot
of Sydney where millions of visitors have travelled to get away from city
life. 'Seven miles from Sydney and a thousand miles from care'. These two
editions of the history of Manly in 200 black and white photographs, many
never before published, cover all the suburbs of the area and give a delightful
remembrance of tourists from the 1850s onwards. It is a lovely nostalgic book
full of romantic images and a history of one of our city’s best known
areas. Written by historian Virginia Macleod.
