Stephen Dennis Faulkner, died 14 Aug 2006, was a long-term resident of Canberra.  Evidence from the photographs suggests that he worked at a variety of labouring jobs in Queensland and Canberra, and that he spent his leisure time with both workmates and the Gower family of O’Connor, ACT. He apparently had an interest in cars, and went picknicking in rural ACT and adjoining areas of New South Wales.  His photographs depict not only a developing Canberra but the lifestyle of people here during the 1960s and early 1970s.

Transfer from the Public Trustee.
