Amherst township map from 1855

Here is a cool historical map of Amherst from the national library
Digital Collections - Maps - Victoria. Surveyor General's Office. Amherst township and suburban and country lands at Daisy Hill in the County of Talbot [cartographic material]
You can zoom in on the map but unfortunately not far enough to read the wording, although I don't think it goes as far out as our place looking at the roads (assuming they're the same of course)

Great to come across your story of Talbot and Amherst-am tracing the family tree and am descendant of owners of hotels in Amherst-great to see detailed land and mining areas-off to do more research from the archives.
