If you look closely at a picture of India's venerable Taj Mahal and Melbourne's Flinders St railway station, there's  a remarkable likeness. The design for the station carried generous prizes for the best three submissions and 17 were submitted in the late 1890s. The winning three are shown in this book. It was not until 1910 that the station, which replaced a rather unattractive one on the same site, was completed. The author looks at the life of the busy station and incidents that have occurred there such as a trolley laden with fruit running out of control in the subway and apples rolling in all directions as commuters took evasive action.
