Download old maps and plans | PROV Is it seeing the origin of your geographic home that holds your attention? Or do you prefer the rich aesthetic of old maps? Sometimes its not the map's location which draws our breath but its sketched up lines mixed with colour that when turned upside down are akin more to contemporary art than an 1850 cadastral map of land boundaries in Footscray. Public Record Office Victoria preserves one of the more comprehensive collections of olds maps and plans in Victoria, some argue one of the most valuable in Australia, and following a multi-year project dedicated to making it accessible, over half of it can now be downloaded. Historic Plans Collection The collection known as The Historic Plans collection includes 11500 items from across 48 collections, and dates from the year 1836 until 1984.

American Dynasties Let’s Give Up on the Constitution AS the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions. Consider, for example, the assertion by the Senate minority leader last week that the House could not take up a plan by Senate Democrats to extend tax cuts on households making $250,000 or less because the Constitution requires that revenue measures originate in the lower chamber. Why should anyone care? Why should a lame-duck House, 27 members of which were defeated for re-election, have a stranglehold on our economy? Why does a grotesquely malapportioned Senate get to decide the nation’s fate? Our obsession with the Constitution has saddled us with a dysfunctional political system, kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse.
