Vintage map and car pictures

Gregory's directories have announced that they are no longer producing printed maps. It's all GPS now. Which is kind of sad. Gregory's were one of the earliest producers of street directories and maps. Clive Barrass was the original map maker and his early maps are just gorgeous.

I am accumulating quite a collection of vintage Gregory's directories. The print quality, paper thickness and colour make these old maps so special.






And they look especially fabulous framed up with a vintage Japanese toy car!

Going in the shop, of course. And available with Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane and Adelaide maps...
