Streets and buildings of Sydney

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3086P

Scope and Contents

Collection of loose albumen prints mounted on cards. This collection provides a very substantial graphic record of Sydney in the 1870s but it is inadequately captioned; some details are written in pencil on the mounts, but as these have become very soiled, identification is sometimes difficult. Valuable assistance has been given by visiting photographic librarians from Australia.


  • Creation: 1870 - 1879
