Map of Adelaide 1849 now online!
A high quality Map of Adelaide from 1849 is now online:
Plan Of Country Sections &c In The Immediate Vicinity Of The City Of Adelaide In The Province Of South Australia 1849.
Note that this map has its own domain name, but it is also accessible through the 'Australian Maps' page at the MAPCO website.
This is rare and beautiful map of the Adelaide Plains. I hope that you find it of interest. There will be further information relating to the places named on the map coming soon.
Unfortunately it has been a quiet year for MAPCO, due to work stress and subsequent related illness. However, I am confident that 2012 will see continued publication of more quality antique map images. Those with Irish connections may want to keep an eye on the 'News' page, as there will be a huge and very rare 1838 Map of Ireland displayed early in the New Year.
Best wishes to all for a happy, safe, and prosperous year ahead in 2012!
