Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The researcher will need to consult the records description list to identify photograph of interest.
    The list details number sequence (seemingly random); title of location photographed; mapping scale i.e. 1:16000; date of survey.

    The researcher will need to peruse the entire Records Description List when searching for specific locations as some areas are repeated further down in list.

    These photographs were originally held in large photograph boxes. When the prints were reboxed for transfer to PROV, some sequences had to be divided up into two folders and placed in sequential boxes.

  • Function / Content
    This series of Aerial Photographs consists of 9 x 9 Diapositives and Prints. These are generally copies of Department of Crown Lands and Survey (VA 538) aerial photography and in most cases were part of standard Department of Crown Lands and Survey Map Sheet Set. These were used by the State Rivers and Water Commission (VA 723), the Rural Water Commission (VA 2338), and the Rural Water Corporation (VA 4234) to produce Photomosaics to record flood elevations and extents and assist in the design of rural water supply infrastructure.

  • Recordkeeping System
    These photographs are arranged numerically. The numbers given to the photographs however appear random and seem only used as a means of retrieval.
