1947 Map of Melbourne


The original map was quite large - 64 x 47 cm, in order to display the incredible detail of the city's lanes. Therefore we recommend that if you intend using this map for research that you choose a print size of either A2, A1 or A0, so that the information is readable.

A beautiful 1947 map of Melbourne and adjacent suburbs. In this post-war era, most of the government, retail and service providers were located within the CBD of Melbourne. Maps such as this one were an invaluable accessory for those who needed to visit the centre of Melbourne and also to find out the available methods of transport.

The reverse of the map has an index of all of the streets and their location on the map. Also listed are Places of Interest, Hospitals, and Baths & Wharves.
