Poster Estate Map - Wilston Estate 1885Library Shop
Wilston Estate map shows the plan of allotments to be sold on Saturday 9 May by John Cameron, Auctioneer. The area, surveyed by G. K. Jopp, comprises 309 subdivisions in the parish of Enoggera. The estate includes the land surrounding Vale Street, Wilston Road (later know as Lamont Road) and Cross Street (later known as Macgregor Street).
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.
