Summary

This aerial photograph is part of a collection of maps stored in a wooden cabinet. The series was created by the Melbourne City Council Engineering Services department in the late 1960s. The photographs document the Melbourne City Council municipality, particularly focusing on the areas west, north-west and south of Melbourne CBD. These areas have undergone huge urban transformation in the time since these photographs have been taken.

This map captures East Melbourne (left) and Richmond (right). It features the Melbourne Cricket Ground (lower left), Richmond Station (lower centre), Fitzroy Gardens (centre left), Powlett Reserve (upper centre), West Richmond Station (centre) and North Richmond Station (upper centre).
