The Knaggs Plans of the Port of Newcastle are a series of plans published as part of the The Newcastle nautical almanac, directory and guide to the Port of Newcastle. (Newcastle, N.S.W. : R.C. Knaggs & Co.) from surveys conducted of the harbour. We have been able to locate a selection of those published from 1880 to 1895. Besides documenting the development of Newcastle and Stockton’s streetscape, and the Port of Newcastle, they are also a great reference for understanding the Aboriginal landscape through the topographical data recorded as well.  They were digitised in the GLAMx lab from copies of the Newcastle Nautical Almanac located in our Rare Book serials S528.05/1. The high resolution scans are provided free of charge courtesy of Cultural Collections, University of Newcastle (Australia). Click on the images in the post to access the higher resolution images.
