This layout is shown in the Melbourne Museum of Printing in 2014, printed on a sheet of notepaper in use before 1999 (i.e. at the Museum's old address in Moreland Street). It keeps to the English practice of mids and thins above the i box, and the lay is very similar to the Western Australian Education Department lay of the 1960s, apart from having the punctuation on the top left and the ligatures on the top right whereas WAED have ligatures top left and punctuation top right. Melbourne also does not allocate a box for hair spaces, Æ, Œ, or £. Although both cases have the U.S. style of case with the box above the i box divided, rather than a single box, the lays differ from normal U.S. lays, which put q where x is, ffl where J is, swap w and , and start the figures above the i box, instead of having spacing there. See for example, California Job of 1897 or the more modern California Job of 1997.
The Melbourne layout sheet also comments that although the letters (apart from q), figures and full stop, hyphen and comma are in standard positions, the ligatures and other punctuation tend to vary.
Note that the X row of boxes shown above should be the same size as the A, H, P rows of boxes, and the ' and ' boxes and 7 8 9 0 boxes should all be the same size. The empty case configuration is U.S. California Job.
