Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The Photo Register (VPRS 14742) controls this record series. The number of a negative depicting a subject of interest can be obtained by referring to the entries beside the sequential numbers. Alternatively, the number of a negative of interest could be obtained from the Subject Index to Photographs VPRS 14739 or from the photograph folders themselves (located in VPRS 14740, Photographs).

  • Function / Content
    These records are the negatives controlled by the Photo Register VPRS 14742. The agency's principal registration system for photographs is based around this series of photo negatives. The negatives are held in envelopes, twenty negatives per envelope. The range number of the negatives contained within each envelope is recorded on the outside of the envelope. Each negative has a number containing four digits.

    These records were the responsibility of the Publications and Information section. The aim of that section was to promote soil conservation and the Authority. The use of photography assisted in that purpose. Specifically, the section was required to develop and maintain a photographic record of activities including field days, structures, types of soil erosion and soil conservation activities of all kinds.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The photo negatives are arranged numerically in envelopes; there are twenty negatives within each envelope. The negatives are controlled by the Photo Register VPRS 14742. VPRS 14739 Subject Index and VPRS 14740 Photographs also provide access to negative (numbers). Further research is required to document the record keeping system.
