This real estate map from 1917 advertises 404 allotments of land for sale at the Bulcock Estate in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast. There is a discrepancy between the map and newspaper advertisements for the sale which report 353 allotments being available. The allotments for sale were situated along Bulcock Street, The Esplanade, Warne Terrace, Dingle Avenue, Knox Avenue, Minchinton Street, Leeding Terrace, Grigor Avenue (now Otranto Avenue), Flitcroft Terrace (now Omrah Avenue), Ferris Avenue (now Tay Avenue and Centaur Street), Burgess Terrace (now Maloja Avenue) and Gay Terrace (now Lower Gay Terrace). The map also shows the property Bulcock’s House (also known as The Homestead). The house was built in 1878 by Robert Bulcock. Prior to the sale extensive publicity was published in Brisbane newspapers. Estate maps can give information about land subdivisions, including how the land was subdivided, when it was first auctioned, who the surveyors were and who sold the land. They are useful for investigating the history of urban land areas. They were also used as advertisements for land sales.
