David would like assistance in positively identifying the business name of a Printery in the map.
“between Abbott and Devonshire Streets there is a Printer noted but in every copy I can find the name is distorted. I know there was a printer in the area called Thomas at the time, but the name on this map seems to begin with M – and I can’t find a printer in Maitland at the era who fits the bill.”
Anyone who can help with this is welcome to leave a comment below this post. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
