"The famous Sands & McDougall Victorian Directory was the internet of its day, a vast web of information compiling the names of Melburnian householders in enormous annually published volumes. Today, its 117-year publishing legacy (and the great beauty of the huge books) is immense.
Founded in 1857, the Directory of residents, trades and streets lasted until 1974. It remains much-used by historians and genealogists, but also contains many lost and unexpected treasures. Page Not Found explores how each Directory is a story of lost Melbourne, for every year's volume records the massive changes this city has undergone."
