Description
 
To this day the Gregory's name is associated with street directories. Back in November 1934 the first edition of Gregory's Street Directory of Sydney and Suburbs was published.

This volume is a facsimile of the 11th edition, published around 1943. If you're wanting to know what the city and suburbs of Sydney was like in 1943, this is a brilliant way to find out. Showing 96 clearly marked maps, you'll find over 15,000 streets named, as well as tram and train lines, municipal boundaries, parks and reserves and other distinctive features. There are indexes to wharves and lessees, yacht clubs, bays and reserves, real estate agents, hospitals and of course the streets.

The scale is drawn at 30 chains to the inch, except for 16 maps of the inner city, which have a scale of 15 chains to the inch.

This is a wonderful visual reference though the maps of Sydney and suburbs of Sydney as it was. 

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
