Australian Photo Archive Site

Filed under: Stuff On the Web — nicksmyname @ 5:15 pm

Just stumbled across a link to a cool website. The National Library has been putting a lot of archived photos online. They seem to come from a lot of different sources, but there are lots of great old photo’s of Newtown in there.

The only picture of our street is from 1968 of: “the Alleged accident at Gully Grate”. The houses you can see are actually on Wilson Street, but the Gully Grate is ours!!

1968 Photo of Street in Newtown

If you search on “Newtown” though you get a lot more results. Newtown has always embraced cutting edge fashions:

Fascinating Stuff. There’s even photos of Dulwich Hill in there. Have fun!
