Just going to quote the book. I'm just going to write was planned because i'm not sure which venues existed and which ones were games dependent. Archery was planned at Seneca College, King City. 50k

My letters,official reports, maps of villages and sports rules of Mexico 1968

They discussed gold coast But it was not part of the cluster plan it was all Brisbane not spread out to Gold coast

The digital Version was also included in the Official Report (in parts and in the Torino 2006 Layout and Branding). This is why I bought it. They also produced a Paralympic Copy additional to the Bid book - nothing special but I got it as well. I will post pics when I have it

Imagine how different Melbourne could have been, even in 1996.

The Melbourne Exhibition Centre opposite the Royal Exhibition Building.

No new Northern Stand for the MCG. The other existing stands (Member's, Olympic, Ponsford) would have been heavily renovated.

Melbourne Museum perhaps located where the Melbourne Exhibition Centre is now.

The Crown casino complex hurriedly built and completed in time for the Olympics.

Spencer Street Station (Southern Cross) receiving some cosmetic upgrades and not a full upgrade like for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Flinders Street Station receiving minor renovations and overall cleaning.

No Federation Square, with perhaps an Olympic Square located in its place.

Docklands being mostly residential, and not mixed residential/commercial.

Well here's to another bid!

I wish they would have bid for 2020 or 2024, I would be living there by then.

Wow congrats! Was that the $150 melbourne bid books? I had seen them but wasn't sure of how much postage was. I got the Melbourne ones for $200 including postage.

Finally found the ebay link of the Torino ones and they look amazing! Where did you find Seville? I had seen Buenos Aires on that site as well.

Congratulations! You should definitely take pics of all your bid books together haha

Yes, it was the 150 Dollar Set. The Torino 2006 ones are not that well, as I have their additional Paralympic Copy and it is lousy as all of the 2006 Bid Books (except Sion).

But I will post pics when I have them
