OWN A SLICE OF MELBOURNE HISTORY
The year is 1966. Decimal currency is introduced… Harold Holt’s in charge… the Saints win the flag… and a Melbourne icon is born.
The Melway Street Directory is as much a part of this city as the MCG, the Yarra River, Flinders Street Station and W Class trams. To celebrate, we've released a special Commemorative First Edition Melway.
What did Melbourne look like in 1966? This sensational talking piece for any proud Melburnian’s home is a collector’s item, delivered in a beautiful display box.
See the proposed site of the Melbourne Jetport, study the streetscape before freeways ringed the city, check out all the drive-in movie theatres, and discover how much has changed in your neighbourhood since 1966.
This limited edition treasure is an excellent gift, a time capsule showing just how much Melbourne has changed in nearly half a century. Great for showing the kids what the area once looked like, and for learning plenty about Melbourne’s history in one of Victoria’s most loved icons.
