State Library Victoria: Maps that made Melbourne financial appeal!

State Library Victoria

The State Library Victoria’s collection of Melbourne survey maps is a missing piece in the story of Melbourne’s development. They give an account of streetscapes, civic spaces and social development from a pivotal time in the city’s history.

However, the thousands of pages of tissue-thin paper with handmade drawings that make up these survey maps are deteriorating, and we risk losing the history forever if they are not preserved and digitised soon. The Library needs to raise $160,000 before June 30 so that work can start on conserving the oldest and most fragile volumes.
