old colonial WA surveyor's maps c1880

Item number: BOO26101721

Price: $950

early colonial photo-lithographic surveyor's maps
Western Australia c1880's
Murchison region
Austin's track
Surveyor General Office, Perth, WA 1881
C. Woodhouse


above shows close up of one of the maps

There are about 20 maps in this old cannister I found as is, with some 20 odd hand-drawn photo-lithographic surveyor's maps of some region in outback Western Australia. Some have "Austin's Track" on them, and the Murchison River. I believe these are loctaed east/inland of Kalbarri, and Kalbarri National Park. I have photographed one of these maps below, actually 2 maps stuck together. Some of the other landmarks in the photographed map include Geraldine Mine, which I believe is close to the town of Yarranda. Western Australia was not settled until 1828 so these are rather early map. That reagion was basically explored between 1850 and 1890. The maps are generally in very good condition, just a couple of foxing spots on some of them, a few with bent over corners etc. The photographed map shown below is signed C. Woodhouse, Feb 1881. Each part of 2 in this photograph was priced at 2/6 (2 shillings and 6 pence) which would have been a lot of money in its time. The size of the photographed map (two joined as one) is about 98 cms x 37 cms. Some of the otehr maps are bigger than this and soem smaller. The material is like paper on cloth. In very good condition for age.






















Here's a photograph of the old tin cannister I found them in,
and of the rest of the maps in a tight bundle.
