About the Collection
This collection of historical photographs has been built up over time primarily from donations from the community. The Library actively collects photographs of the Sutherland Shire which are of historical interest. Enquiries regarding the donation of local history material should be directed to the Local Studies Librarian at Sutherland Library.
The vast majority of photographs are available online, however, there are a few that aren't there. Photos that are not currently included will be added as we become aware of them. The only way to access the full collection of photographs is from the Local Studies Collection at Sutherland Library.
These photographs are made available for research purposes and cannot be reproduced without the permission of Sutherland Shire Libraries. The Libraries offer a photographic reproduction service for people wishing to obtain copies of photos that are of photographic quality. Prices for this service vary and those interested should contact Sutherland Library.
