Description:

Rare large scale detailed map of Sydney by H.E.C. Robinson. 

This second edition (1925) shows the final design for the Sydney Harbour Bridge with a note in red stating, ‘North Shore Bridge under Construction“‘. The first edition of this map issued in 1923 (SLNSW/ CALL NUMBER: M Z/M4 811.17/1923/1) shows Bradfield’s earlier design for a cantilevered bridge which the NSW Legislative Assembly passed a bill for the construction but did not proceed as the Legislative Council rejected the legislation on the basis that the money would be used for the war effort.

Mapmaker:

Herbert Edward Cooper Robinson (1857-1933)

Robinson was a founder of the (Royal) Geographical Society of Australasia in 1885, a member of the Geographical Society of New South Wales in the late 1920s and a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London. He made many valuable contributions to geographical science and was a delegate to the 1923 Sydney Regional Plan Convention. A friend and technical collaborator of Professor Sir Edgeworth David, he helped to produce David’s monumental large-scale Geological Map of the Commonwealth of Australia in 1932. His draughtsmen also produced the maps for Donald Mackay’s important aerial surveys of Australia from 1930.
