This collection consists of photographs marked up for publication in two historical publications:

Department of Capital Territory. Canberra Your Capital. 1981.

Alan Fitzgerald. Historic Canberra 1825-1945. 1977.

The images are all reproductions mainly drawn from the collections of the National Library of Australia (NLA), the National Archives of Australia (NAA) and the Australian War Memorial (AWM).  All of the images are marked up for publication and most are annotated with a description. Some are mounted on stiff card which obscures whatever information may have been written on the back. Each image has a picture and page number corresponding to its location in the relevant publication.

Page numbers recorded on the image are not necessarily the final page number in the publication; we have recorded the publication image and page number for ease of identification. Please also note that not all images used in Fitzgerald’s Historic Canberra 1825-1945 are included in this collection, and that there are two unattributed images that may have been intended for inclusion in Fitzgerald’s book.

We have linked, where possible, to a digital version of images in the collection. Digital copies of some images are also held in the ACT Heritage Library (ACTHL, ImagesACT), the State Libraries of NSW and Victoria (SLNSW, SLV) and the City of Sydney Archives.
