Do you live at Kangaroo Point? Is your lot listed? Things may have changed a bit since the 1880s. William Thornton's residence was up for auction. He was the former Brisbane Collector of Customs - a lucrative profession judging by his residence.

Estate maps can give information about land subdivisions, including how the land was subdivided, when it was first auctioned, who the surveyors were and who sold the land. They are useful for investigating the history of urban land areas. They were also used as advertisements for land sales.

Print details

42cm x 51 cm approx. Prints are created using archival pigment inks on A2 size  200 gsm archival photo paper with a matte finish.

We leave a small white border of 10-15mm around the image area to protect it during shipping, to avoid fingerprints while being handled, and to allow for framing (prints do not come framed).

Prints will be carefully rolled and mailed in a protective tube.

Aside from a small selection in-store, all prints are print on demand. Please allow up to 48 hours for production.
