This tenth edition of 'Robinson's Sydney Street Directory' contains 181 maps of the City of Sydney and the surrounding suburbs - completely revised from the previous edition using aerial photos and other sources.
There is a key map useful for general reference as it shows municipal boundaries, suburbs, railways and main roads. The fully detailed maps show the local points of interest and all the streets - with street numbers shown at the corner of each street. There are indexes to the localities, hospitals and streets. This really is a fascinating look into Sydney and its suburbs as they were back in the late 1940s.
Condition: This hardcover, sewn-bound book is all intact, but the cover is loose. The cover does show some wear, and has a few dirty patches, and there are pencil marks on a few maps. Overall the content of the book is in excellent, and it includes the large, fold-out map.
