  • Function / Content
    The SECV Latrobe Valley Photographic collection began in the 1920's 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. In 1962 the formation of the Latrobe Valley Region occurred, which merged Yallourn and the Morwell Project. This resulted in the two photographic functions combining as part of the Yallourn Drawing Office.

    In the 1990's, 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 in Cartons
    Photographs in Albums
    Negatives
    Glass Plate Negatives (this series)
    35 mm Slides

    This series comprises Black & White Glass Plate Negatives, covering the period 1920 to 1960. There are no Indexes for the Glass Plate Negatives, and a majority do not have a unique identifier.
