Maps and Plans
The Archives has a considerable number of maps of Victoria and environs dating from 1848 to the present.
Building plans and applications for plumbing connections for demolished buildings are also held by the Archives. These are useful tools for researching architects and homes. They also provide information on buildings and businesses that no longer exist.
Applications for plumbing connections show the owner at the time the building was plumbed, legal description and a drawing of the outline of the building with plumbing connections to the sewer. Building plans often show who the building was built for, date, architect, elevations and alterations.
See below for lists of maps and plans. More extensive descriptions of the maps and plans are available at the Archives.
