In five parts, we delve behind the scenes of putting together the online exhibition Lachlan Macquarie: visionary and builder available on the State Records NSW website. Each part in the series will focus on a different aspect of what is involved in putting it all together: planning; conservation; research; digitisation; and finally, adding content to the website.
Bea Scanned is part of the Macquarie-related material in the State Records collection, namely a “Government and general order [signed by Lachlan Macquarie] for persons driving vehicles to observe regulations in force in England to keep to the left side of the road, 15 August 1820” – or more simply, Keep To The Left! Bea is also an [ahem] investigative reporter wannabe and has followed the major players involved in getting the gallery online.
We hope you enjoy this light-hearted, yet informative, new series.
