    Function/Contents

    This series is an accumulation of subject and location indexes created over a period of time from around 1974 to 1982 as finding aids to various classes of public building files and some public building plans (VPRS 7882 and VPRS 8044/P1). They provide access to both series of files and plans, the series and contents date range of which extend back to an earlier period.

    The series forms part of the overall public building record keeping system which includes the numerical and the alphabetical (location) card indexes (VPRS 8041/P1 and 8042/P1).

    The P1 consignment consists of nine indexes. They provide access to public buildings situated on one site, either grouped under a common subject heading with a common P.B. number e.g Showgrounds P.B. 139 or Exhibition Building P.B. 1240, or to buildings situated on different sites bearing different P.B. file numbers but which have a common purpose or feature and which are found scattered in the P.B. filing system e.g. files of Senior Citizens' Centres, Motor Race Tracks, Pre School Centres, buildings in Melbourne C.B.D. An index to the plans of VFL Park, Waverley, an index to the Victorian Arts Centre and lastly a file containing information about all tent files found in the Public Building filing system (VPRS 7882) and in the P.B.T. series, (VPRS 8050/P1) also form a part of this series.

    Contents

    The first two volumes of the P1 consignment relate to the files grouped under a common subject heading e.g. Showground and Exhibition Building. They have a common P.B. number allocated to the group as a whole with further divisions of part numbers/part letters each relating to either an individual structure on the premises or the plans for a temporary exhibition.

    Volumes three, four, five and six provide access to certain classes of public buildings e.g. Motor Race Tracks, Senior Citizens' Centres and Pre School Centres and some Schools with part files.

    Volume seven provides access to public buildings situated in the Central Business District of Melbourne City.

    The information recorded includes the number of the plot of the land, name of the street where the building is located and the P.B. number.

    Volumes eight and nine provide access to the plans of Victorian Football League (V.F.L.) Park, Waverley and the Victorian Art Centre (VPRS 8044/P1).

    Volume ten provides access to all the tent files including the 192 files which were physically put back into the public building filing system. For details see Public Building Files VPRS 7882/P1 and Public Building Tent Files VPRS 8050/P1.
