Government Printing Office negatives - digitally available
We are excited to announce that we have recently published more than 44,000 digital images from the Government Printing Office (NRS-4481) online.
These are glass negatives maintained by the Government Printing Office as a resource for government information and publications. The photographs date from 1870-c.1955 and cover a range of subjects including, public buildings, railways, tramways, street scenes, harbour views, groups of people, ships, public occasions, military camps, wharves, dams and waterways, statues and slums.
Our thanks go to the State Library of NSW who supplied the digitised images that made the publication possible.
