Archival Notes Most items are from the Roadknight Collection. Roadknight family members married in to other Geelong real estate families so their records may have been present in the collection. A full survey of this important collection needs to be undertaken to determine who produced each book. Investigate links between these plans and the business ledgers of Roadknight & Co. Pages in folio 17 have been interleaved with unbuffered tissue as a preservation measure - high priority for digital preservation as it has extensive water damage. Scope and content Many important lithographed copies of subdivisional plans as well as hand drawn and coloured pieces. Very early plans recording land use and ownership. Access Status View items on microfiche before requesting originals, folios are difficult to retrieve - large and fragile. See collection project spreadsheet.
