This series consists of separate bundles of A4 and A3 photocopies (item 1 is A4 and item 2 is A3). The photocopies appear to be taken from various plans, correspondence, etc regarding the early years of the Geelong Botanic Gardens. The items may have been compiled for a specific project but the nature of that project is not yet clear. Many of the items appear to have been copied from Geelong Town Council records which are also held in the Geelong Heritage Centre. Further investigation into the purpose of this compilation is needed.
