historical photographic archive from Victoria, Australia

"The McCallum Collection comprises over 18,000 photographic images mainly created between 1857 and 1960 taken in the south west of Victoria."

Not all the photos are dated but the ones I looked at a quite decent quality. These may be good for those aftyer inspiration or researching Australian working clothing and conditions in the 1800s.

I couldn't work out how you are supposed to look at the photos... Every link I clicked on, every search word I tried came up with nothing. What magic button am I missing?

  • Click on [search the collection]
  • Type your search term into the [Any word] [Keyword] textbox, e.g. 'steam' or 'engine'
  • Click on any photo you are interested in
  • To see the photo better and without the watermark, click on the photograph to load it a new window so that you can zoom in/out. Please note: the screen will turn black while the photograph loads and it may take a few seconds. I don't know how to zoom out (though a mouse scroll wheel might do it). Going back in your browser will take you back to the page with the watermarked photo.

Hope that helps.
