Hidden Melbourne

If you love pictures of historic Melbourne, check out this site: http://www.hiddenmelbourne.com.au/OldMelbourneScenes

This interactive site uses high resolution pictures, panoramas, photos and maps from the State Library of Victoria collections, like this one.
You can click through to find lots of fascinating images of different sites in the early town and then rapidly growing city. Below, for example, is a view from 1855.

And here is Melbourne by 1881!
Definitely worth a look. Thanks to Barney Meyer for creating the site, and to State Library of Victoria for collecting and digitising the wonderful images.
