Alexandria Blaelock
A collection of Walling's black and white photographs, and description of Australian roadside vegetation in general, and specifically of seven Victorian highways.

Interesting from the point of view of what vestigial native vegetation looked like (which plants thrived with what), but also the changes in the landscape since the original book was first published.

Curiously, she notes the lack of Cootamundra wattles when driving through Cootamundra.
