Melbourne was a busy place in the 1920s, and this street directory shows it.

Even 90 (nearly) years ago, this street directory is not unlike ours of today. In just over 300 pages, this one includes not only maps of Melbourne and suburbs, but also numerous advertisement of local businesses of the time, as well as listings of hospitals, associations and societies, asylums and homes, cemeteries, the Government of Victoria and more.

The suburbs which are covered by the maps are: Albert Park, Alphington, Armadale, Ascot Vale, Balwyn, Box Hill, Brighton, Brunswick, Burwood, Camberwell, Canterbury, Carlton, Caulfield, Coburg, Collingwood, East Melbourne, Elsternwick, Elwood, Essendon, Fairfield, Fitzroy, Flemington, Footscray, Hampton, Hawthorn, Heidelberg, Ivanhoe, Kensington, Kew, Malvern, Melbourne, Middle Park, Moonee Ponds, Newmarket, Newport, Northcote, North Fitzroy, North Melbourne, Oakleigh, Parkville, Port Melbourne, Prahran, Preston, Richmond, Sandringham and Hampton (includes Moorabbin, Cheltenham, Black Rock and Beaumaris), South Melbourne, Spotswood, St Kilda, Surrey Hills, West Footscray, Williamstown and Yarraville.

A wonderful record of Melbourne and suburbs and is ideal for finding where your parents or grandparents lived, if they were in the region during this period.

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.
