  • How to use the Records
    Film negatives of various subjects relating to Electrical Sales ( VPRS 15769, SECV 0001 - see below) and Briquette Sales (VPRS 15781, SECV 0036 - see below) can be identified using this series. Each sequence of negatives is listed in sequential order. A number, subject and date is given for each negative. Peruse the "PBF" sequence to select Briquette Sales negatives, and the "PBC" sequence to select Electrical Sales negatives, and then order the required negative from VPRS 15769, SECV 0001 or VPRS 15781, SECV 0036.

  • Function / Content
    These volumes control two series of photographic negatives. The two controlled series are:

    * VPRS 15769, SECV 0001, Photographic Images, Film Negatives and Transparencies, Electrical Sales, Single Number, PBC prefix.

    Subjects relating to Electrical Sales are predominately electrical products and sales and promotional activities. Typical Electrical Sales subjects include electrical products and associated show rooms and displays, portraits of agency staff, publicity events such as the agency's float in Moomba parades, promotional activities at agricultural shows, sporting events under floodlights, lighting installations, etc. There are no entries for Electrical Sales negatives PBC 789 to PBC 988 inclusive, although the cover of the second volume indicates that the volume commences at PBC 780.

    * VPRS 15781, SECV 0036, Photographic Images, Film Negatives, Briquette Sales, Single Number, PBF prefix.

    Typical Briquette Sales subjects relate mainly to the sale of briquettes and briquette appliances. This includes SECV showrooms and displays featuring briquette appliances, briquette manufacturing operations, and photographic copies of captions for use in publications. The series also includes subjects that don't directly relate to sales of briquettes but which could be used in promotional material: for example, the subject of PBF 450 is the Frankston Caravan Park, and PBF 473 is a photograph of the interior of a modern house.

    For each sequence, pages are divided into three columns: No. / Subject / Date.

    Some entries are annotated "colour" or "copy".

  • Recordkeeping System
    The other records in this record keeping system are the two controlled series:

    * VPRS 15769, SECV 0001, Photographic Images (Film Negatives and Transparencies): Electrical Sales, and

    * VPRS 15781, SECV 0036, Photographic Images (Film Negatives): Briquette Sales.

    Within these volumes (Register) each SECV series is arranged by a single number sequence.

    Only the first volume contains the "PBF" sequence. The sequence commences on the first page.

    The "PBC" sequence commences on the last page of the first volume, with the entries proceeding in reverse order until reaching the "PBF" sequence. The "PBC" sequence then continues in the usual way from the first page of the second volume.
