Slide 1 from “The Hunter District Water Board Plans of the 1890s
A Presentation to the Hunter Living Histories Initiative” by Russell Rigby, June 2019


All plans have now been uploaded.

If you are a regular visit to this site, you have probably seen Russell Rigby’s excellent presentation on the Hunter District Water Board Plans of the 1890s. At the time he was writing, the plans had not yet been uploaded to any of our sites. However, they have now been uploaded to our Living Histories @ UON platform.

It took some time to get these maps online because the street names, house names and significant buildings mentioned on each map have been included in the description to make it easier to find them in a search.
