I LOVE that all the MMBW maps are digitized and available on the State Library of Victoria website.  That's Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works maps for you non Melbournians.  They were created over a number of years in the late 19th and 20th century as a precursor to sewering the city.  And they are provide me with many, many hours of amusement.  Thanks you, State Library of Victoria for completing this fabulous project.
