Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The Photographic Index VPRS 14745 controls this record series. Researchers should consult the Index for subjects of interest. The Index records photograph numbers for that subject.

    Once the photograph/negative number is obtained from the above series refer to the Consignment Details for this series and identify the required unit.

  • Function / Content
    This is a series of photographs and negatives stored in envelopes. The series is controlled by a sequential numbering system. The range of numbers is 1-384. The envelopes are numbered; the latter photographs include the title of the subject.

    The majority of envelopes comprising the P1 consignment of this series are missing. A complete set of photos and negatives is to be found in the P2 consignment. However, the prints in the P2 consignment are much smaller in size and therefore not as useful in providing detail of the subject..

    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 photographs and the negatives are arranged numerically in envelopes.
