Long term projects
The History Unit of the Department of School Education collected these photographs when preparing school histories, research for public relations, or giving presentations. The collection consists mainly of photographic prints showing school buildings, pupils, teachers, or educational activities. Most include an identifying caption and date.
There are c.900 photos available in Photo Investigator and many more to come. The photos are arranged in alphabetical order by school and we are currently up to “C”.
