A History Month event: 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.

The Genealogical Society of Victoria is organising a guided walking tour of historic Flagstaff gardens followed by a light lunch and a tour of the RHSV's resources. The walk will begin and end at the RHSV's home in the Drill Hall, opposite Flagstaff Gardens at 239 A'Beckett Street, Melbourne. The walking tour will climb Flagstaff Hill to consider its place in Melbourne's topography and pre-European history as well as its early role as a burial ground, flagstaff signalling station and magnetic and meteorological observatory. An absolute "must do" walk for understanding the history and character of Melbourne city.

Recently the RHSV took part in Open House Melbourne which concentrated our minds on the history and architecture of our home, the Australian Army Medical Corps Drill Hall which was built, like so many others in 1938 in the build-up to WWII. The building's history, its original purpose and its architecture are inextricably linked.  And who better to explain those connections than Mike O'Brien? Mike will be addressing Drill Halls in general - what is drill? what happens in drill halls?
