Sample Victorian Outdoor Image from Victorian Image CollectionWe have masses of information BUT – we always need more.

Research thrives on data, and lots of it.

We are always looking for:

  • original Victorian or Edwardian photographs – mainly portraits but some views are of interest
  • dated photographs – 1840 to 1940
  • date information from trade directories or similar publications
  • photographic ephemera such as letters, billheads, advertisements etc.
  • prize medals for photography
  • photographs of photographers, their studios or their families
  • biographical notes about photographers – especially from their descendants.

We are also interested in all of the above relating to Australia or New Zealand as well. Many Victorian photographers emigrated to the Antipodes and a few even came back again.

If you have anything to dispose of please contact us.
