    Function/Contents

    This series contains fordigraph stencils of sketch plans of certain classes of public buildings e.g., Amusement Structures and Tents, Child Minding Centres, Special Accommodation Houses, Senior Citizens Centres, Pre School and Infant Welfare Centres and some other plans connected with public building files VPRS 7882/P1.

    These stencils were created and updated by the health administering authorities over the years from 1952 to 1988 perhaps for quick reference, or for easy reproduction of some plans big in size and also to avoid excess handling of the public building files (VPRS 7882/P1) and public building plans (VPRS 8044/P1). They could be the only record extant - where the public building file and plan folio are missing.

    They also provide an alternative source to some existing public building files e.g. A.S. and C.M. (Amusement Structure) and (Child Minding Centre) which are now in the custody of the Department of Labour and Community Services, Victoria respectively. (Refer to P.B. files series (VPRS 7882/P1).
