Images of Mosman from the State Records archive

Tram to Balmoral

First tram in operation to Balmoral. 29 May 1922.

The State Records Authority of NSW has some great photos of Mosman on Flickr, the worldwide photo community website. Have a look at their photostream.

By uploading some of these images to Flickr we aim to highlight our photographic collection and hope that you might be able to join us in identifying unknown scenes, people and places by tagging and commenting on our photostream.

It’s an impressive collection!

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.

Here are some other Mosman photos in their Flickr photostream:

Their own online collection of more than 5,500 images can be accessed using the Photo Investigator service.
