Google Maps V 1940’s Melbourne

I have just spent a few hours searching for my house on old aerial maps from the 1940's. Luckily I'm good at finding locations using very little information, like road shapes and river bends.

If you are going to search for your home try having Google maps open as well so you can use the rivers and some roads to match it up. Especially if you are searching outside of the CBD, where most of the roads don't exist.


 


 

Here's a link to the University of Melbourne Map collection.
