Old school map ; New South Wales [sold]

Modern Teaching Map No 112
Chas H. Scally & Co. 8th Ed, c.1950s

A lovely old map from a primary school in the Blue Mountains, this map shows New South Wales and the Snowy Mountains Scheme in the 1950s.

The Snowy Mountains Scheme map [commenced in 1949- a revolutionary hydro-electric project] indicates roads, tunnels and power stations on the legend. Meanwhile, NSW is described by railways, highways, shipping routes, towns connected by air with Sydney & Melbourne, irrigation areas and irrigation districts. Yep, in the 50s irrigation was important stuff.

The map is in great condition: the colours and finish of the map are superb. I have seen similar maps- albeit of later editions in antique shops – for a WHOLE lot of money; but this map needs to be seem and displayed so I have priced it to sell.

The map of NSW c.1950 is for sale: $AUD175
