These photographs of early Canberra were discovered at home by Wendy Barker, who forwarded them to the ACT Heritage Library. All are black and white, 5 x 3.5cm. The photographer is unknown, but most of the photographs are captioned and dated May 1967. They appear to be a record of a trip to Canberra and the Snowy Mountains at that time.
