Description:

Very rare small map of Mornington, Victoria, dated 15th October 1875. Originally known as Schnapper (or Snapper) Point, the town was renamed Mornington in 1864 after the second Earl of Mornington.

2. The word Esplanade has been moved towards the centre of the map
3. The allotment on the Esplanade between Main and Drake Street which had been allocated for the Court House Reserve is now unallocated. The Courthouse was built in 1861
