Off the Drawing Board, a National Archives of Australia presentation
October 17 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
Did you know that the National Archives’ Victoria office holds over 5,000 architectural drawings of public buildings across Victoria? Dating back as early as the 1850s, the drawings document not only famous Melbourne landmarks, but also humbler suburban and rural facilities, such as local post offices and drill halls. This makes these drawings an invaluable resource for anyone researching local history and heritage.
Presented by Patrick Ferry from the National Archives of Australia for History Month.
