Aerial photo of Richmond taken in about 1873
The City of Richmond was first incorporated as a municipality on 24 April 1855, having seperated from the
City of Melbourne. The first Crown allotment land sales in Richmond however took place as far back as the
1st of March 1839, and subsequently many famous and less famous people have roamed the streets of this
beautiful part of Victoria. I hope that this website will preserve the history of those indivuals into the future.
