Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Consignments P1 - P5 have been titled so as to broadly describe their subject-matter. Although the system of arrangement of these photographs was unclear, they seemed to have been grouped by subject.

    The contents of consignments P6 - P11 were not arranged in any particular order and are best described as miscellaneous. They were grouped according to whether their provenance and / or content was described. Many photographs were impossible to identify.

    P12 contains material collected for a 1972 exhibition.

    P13 is a set of glass-plate negatives.

    Consult the records details to find items of interest.

  • Function / Content
    The photographs and other images in this series were accumulated by the Publications Unit, and later the Education History Unit (EHU), of the Department of Education and Training. They depict schools, school students, teachers, politicians, maps, educational activities and other education-related subject-matter.

    The EHU held more than thirty thousand photographs. Most of these were stored in discernible collections. Approximately one thousand miscellaneous photographs and other items, however, were not in any obvious sequence. The labels on many of these later identified them as part of VPRS 14514 or VPRS 14515 and the photographs were returned to these series.

    Some items in consignment P2 are larger prints of items in VPRS 14513, VPRS 14514, VPRS 14515, VPRS 14517 and VPRS 14518, and may have been created for use in exhibitions and publications. However, the relationship between this and other series is subject to further research.

  • Recordkeeping System
    This series was transferred to PROV from the EHU.
