Graceville Estate, 1911 (Map of the Week)
By Myles Sinnamon, Project Coordinator, State Library of Queensland | 14 December 2015
State Library of Queensland has an extensive collection of historical maps of Queensland, some of which have been digitised and can be viewed online.
This real estate map from 1911 is advertising 207 allotments of land for sale at the Graceville Estate in the Brisbane suburb of Graceville. The allotments ran along Graceville Avenue and Verney Road.
Prior to the sale extensive publicity was published in the Brisbane Courier and The Telegraph newspapers with advertisements promising "Cool, invigorating breeze - every allotment ready to build on - right aspect - abundance of fresh air - charming views - exclusive neighbourhood."
The real estate map highlights the close proximity of the allotments to Graceville Railway Station and that the train service is "cheap and frequent".
