VICTORIA ROAD, SYDNEY. - Proposed Road to Gladesville via Balmain and Five Dock. (Correspondence &c ..).
[Sydney, Govt Printer 1869]. Foolscap disbound; 42pp and folding plan. ¶ Not as straightforward nor as dull as you think. One of Sydney's main arterial and most annoying roads, the birth of Victoria Road has its fascinations. This documents eight years of dispute, inertia and recalcitrance finally ending when Charles Abercromby, owner of Birkenhead Estate, withdrew his prosecution of the government surveyor for trespass and other crimes. The dotted lines across Mr Abercromby's patch are a confusion - perhaps recommended routes for a surveyor fleeing the hounds.AUD 100.00 [Appr.: EURO 68.75 US$ 75.15 | £UK 58.75 | JP¥ 8369] Book number 6621
