Archive File - Heritage Studies [Kew & Boroondara]

From the Collection of Kew Historical Society Inc Kew Court House 188 High Street Kew Victoria

Description
Archival file containing correspondence, reports, newspaper articles/clippings, a City of Boroondara Heritage Action Plan (2012) relating to heritage in Kew, Victoria. The earliest item dates from 1964, and is a letter from W. D. Birrell, Town Clerk to the Secretary of the Historical Society. The file also includes a National Trust of Victoria listing of classified buildings as of 1981. The most interesting documents in the file are the City of Kew Heritage Advice Note 1-4, compiled in 1991 and which provides advice on Protecting Heritage through Planning, Victorian Buildings, Edwardian Buildings, and 1930s-1940s houses. The latter would benefit from digitisation and publication.
