Melbourne 1966

I found this link to an online reproduction of Melway Edition 1 at Grouse. There’s even a link to how they made the first edition of this Melbourne institution.

I love Melway, it’s an amazing example of cartography, and I love old maps, especially of Melbourne, so this is my idea of heaven.

For those of you from beyond our fair city the Melway is the standard reference for Melbourne maps. It’s guaranteed to be stashed under a seat in every car and you’re also guaranteed to receive at least one copy when you turn 18 and are eligible for your drivers license.

  1. That’s sooo cooool. I checked out Deer Park, and it’s very small. I wanted a job at Melways at one stage. Very good.
