Description:

Detailed map of the Canberra district showing the geology in colour with an accompanying colour key. Geology by A.A .Opik and from the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics.

The federal legislature moved to Canberra on 9 May 1927, with the opening of the Provisional Parliament House. Planned development of the city slowed significantly during the depression of the 1930s and during World War II. From 1920 to 1957, three bodies, successively the Federal Capital Advisory Committee, the Federal Capital Commission, and the National Capital Planning and Development Committee continued to plan the further expansion of Canberra in the absence of Griffin however, they were only advisory, and development decisions were made without consulting them, increasing inefficiency.
