If you want maps well Sydney Council has many historical maps of Sydney from 1833 to 2004 - maps showing location of old pubs, houses etc. A treasure trove.
The Historical Atlas provides access to maps of the City from different historical periods. The maps can be downloaded as PDF files, then panned and zoomed to pick up smaller areas and close- up details.
ArchivePix is the Archive's online catalogue of photographs. More than 60,000 photographs in the Archives have been digitised and catalogued into ArchivePix. Staff are still adding more. Some photographic records series and collections are only selectively represented. If so, this is indicated in captions.
The Assessment Books record details of ownership, occupation, construction and value for property in the City between 1845 and 1948. They provide valuable information for family and property history not available from any other source.
Planning Street Cards
The Planning Street Cards provide information about historical buildings and development applications from about 1908 to the 1990s. The street cards show all the applications submitted to the City, whether or not the original files and plans exist. To see if the records are actually available you will have to check Archives Investigator or – for records after 1987 – ask the archivists.
Plus much, much more - the atlas section is just wonderful
