Maps on Trove


ABC News featured an article last weekend about The National Libraries Trove website; my favourite go to site for old Newspaper articles. Trove are featuring some quirky historical maps which are well worth looking at. For further details visit the ABC News article “But where is the green sheep? Old maps put the art in cartography” By Cristen Tilley 11/3/17

According to the article there are over 6,000 old maps on Trove which show all sorts of historical data including the amount of sheep, cattle, wheat and minerals in Australia. The size of settlements, the rainfall averages, aboriginal tribes, and vegetation are also amongst those featured in the ABC article.
