The Footpath Guides were featured last weekend (Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th) on ABC TV The Mix and ABC News. Watch the segment here.

Co-creator of Footpath Guides Jacques Sheard takes presenter Lisa Skerrett on a guided walk of highlights from the Melbourne and Sydney guides.

Buildings featured in the segment include Hosies Hotel, ICI Building, and State Library of Victoria in Melbourne; and Water Sewerage Board, Rocks Police Station, The Rocks, and Masonic Centre in Sydney. We're expecting this to promote renewed interest in the guides.

The Footpath Guides are a series of six, pocket-sized walking guides covering notable architecture examples from different eras. The Melbourne guides include St Kilda 1850-1960, Joseph Read 1850-1890, and Mid-Century Modern 1950-1970. The Sydney guides include The Rocks 1815-1950, Inter-War 1915-1940, and Modern 1950-1990. The guides are also available in a box set.
