  • Function / Content
    The SECV Latrobe Valley Photographic collection began in the 1920s with photographs taken of the progress of construction of the Yallourn Township, Power Station and Briquette Factory. It continued on a part-time basis until after World War II and eventually a full-time photographer was appointed and attached to the Yallourn Drawing Office. Between 1957 and 1961 the Morwell Project ran a separate photographic activity. 1962 saw the formation of the Latrobe Valley Region, which merged Yallourn and the Morwell Project. This resulted in the two photographic functions combining as part of the Yallourn Drawing Office.

    In the 1990s, with the corporatisation, disaggregation and privatisation of the SECV, the photographic collection was allocated to PowerWorks, which was jointly owned by the three Latrobe Valley based generation companies. In late 2010 the collection was transferred back into SECV custody.

    The collection is made up of:
    - Photographic prints and negatives,
    - Photographs in albums,
    - Glass Plate negatives,
    - 35mm slides,
    - Indexes.
