This slide shows a plan, two cross-section drawings and a longitudinal section drawing of the road between Vernon, which Walter Burley Griffin also called the Civic Centre, and Market Centre, which is now the suburb of Russell.

Indicated on the slide are natural features in the area such as granite boulders and watercourses.

The proposed railway tunnel that was to cross under the road now known as Constitution Avenue is indicated by a diagonal dotted line in the top right-hand corner of the slide.

Some Canberra residents still use the name ‘Civic’ when referring to the city centre of Canberra.
