  • How to use the Records
    Consult the Records Description List for the category for which information required and then the alphabetical list for a specific building. The number of the envelope in which negatives are contained is listed beside the entry.

  • Function / Content
    The Public Works Department (VA 669) had wide-ranging responsibilities for all public works and buildings, including construction, maintenance and fitting out of these buildings. Other major responsibilities included roads and bridges, ports and harbours, local government and water supply.

    This series consists of photographic negatives of public buildings (including schools, police stations and court houses) drawn or traced by the Public Works Department or submitted to the Public Works Department by contractors.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The photo negatives are divided into four categories: Public Buildings (Melbourne and Country and Suburban), Schools, Police Stations and Court Houses. Within each category, buildings are listed in alphabetical order by location. For each one, the number of the envelope in which the negatives are placed is listed with the number of negatives.
