  • Function / Content
    The photographs in this series are sample prints produced by the Photographic Services Section of the Country Roads Board (VA 722)

    The photographs were printed from the negatives in VPRS 17684 Photographic Collection, Master Negatives and Digitised Images.

    The albums were circulated to the officers of the various divisions/offices of the Country Roads Board for the purposes of checking the captions allocated by the in-house phorographers to the images and correcting where necessary, and also for ordering the prints by quoting the negative number. Officers used the prints for producing reports and other material. The divisions/offices of the Country Roads Board that the albums were circulated to included Bridge Engineering, Highways Engineering, Asphalt Divsion, Plans and Survey, Traffic Office, Benalla Division, Bendigo Division and Warnambool Division.

    The first number represents the year. The next number is the print/negative number allocated to a site location visit. Any subsequent letter refers to a subsequent photograph having been taken at same location on the same date. Eg. 57-627B would be the third photograph taken from location visit number 627 in 1957.
