About State Records New South Wales
We are the NSW Government's archives and records management authority and ensure access to records which illuminate history, enrich the life of the community and support good and accountable government. We hold tens of thousands of archival photos from the late 19th Century to the present, capturing life in New South Wales in much of its richness and diversity. The original formats of these images vary widely, from glass plates and lantern slides to 35mm negatives, colour transparencies and prints.
Our digitisation program aims to bring many of these ‘hidden’ images to light.
