Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Refer to the consignment details for this series and identify the required unit.

  • Function / Content
    This series of photo negatives is stored in envelopes. The envelopes are coded according to some unknown system. The subject of the negative appears on the envelope. The envelopes include the dates when the pictures were taken. Some envelopes indicate that the negative was taken with colour film.

    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 were not arranged in any order in the agency. Subsequent archival work has attempted to arrange them into a chronological sequence. This was done to enable easier access to the records.
