They're back and they're better than ever!
The Sands & McDougall directories are on the way back from being rebound and are hitting the shelves again. You can now turn the pages of these fantastic volumes without fear of breaking the binding, or of pages going everywhere.
The Sands & McDougall are great for finding out information about who lived in your home as well as what businesses were in the area between 1862 to 1974.
The rest of the volumes will be returning to the shelves of the Sam Merrifield Library (762 Mt Alexander Rd, Moonee Ponds) in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for them.
Remember if you have any inquiries about who lived in your house, or where to start your local history research, contact Sam Merrifield Library on (03) 8325 1950 or visit the library building research guide here.
