As a part of the National Heritage Trust Festival, the State Library of Western Australia has given us a glimpse of historical real estate maps of the Perth and surrounding suburbs. The digitised hand drawn maps date from 1895 to 1920s reveal Perth’s suburban transformations.

The State Library holds a vast collection of real estate plans, which were produced when new land releases became available. They show blocks of land, often with the dimensions, roads and features such as lakes, tramlines or railway stations, sometimes individual houses and landowners are marked. The maps show how land values and street names have changed over time. Many blocks were offered for a deposit of 1 to 2 pound with interest free repayments.
