A collection of Photographs illustrative of the Railway System of New South Wales 1887
Scope and Contents
A collection of albumen prints by an unknown photographer. The prints were originally in an album with a printed title page reading 'Charles Potter, Government Printer, presented by C.A. Goodchap, Commissioner of Railways'. Some of the pages have decorative designs round the mount, but only a few have captions, and the following details have been derived from various sources. Plates 21-25 have not been researched in the same detail as plates 1-24 and, unless otherwise stated, they are approximately 340 x 262 mm and in good condition, apart from slight fading chiefly along the bottom and at the outer edge.
Conditions Governing Access
Unless restrictions apply, the collection is open for consultation by researchers using the Manuscripts Reading Room at Cambridge University Library. For further details on conditions governing access please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about opening hours and obtaining a Cambridge University Library reader's ticket is available from the Library's website (www.lib.cam.ac.uk).
