Mappery For the love of maps

Archer Field

Marianne Pietersen sent us these pics from her visit to Archer Field.

“Last year I went to a lecture at Archer Field, Brisbane, about the history of the Dutch military camp there,
during WW2. In a side room of the airport building was a small amount of photos from those days, including the attached 3 maps of the Field. The exhibition is permanent (for now at least.)    😉”

Today the spelling has been concatenated to Archerfield but the title pane of the map makes clear that in the past it was Archer Field.
