    Series : An accumulative series of photographs

    Range of Control Symbols

    Series : None apparent


    This series consists of an accumulation of photographs located during the transfer of records into archival custody from the Public Transport Corporation (VA 2894) in 1989/90. Most of the photographs show scenes relating to the Melbourne and metropolitan tramway system, including property, tram operations and personnel. Others show overseas tramway scenes. Several show unidentified persons. Some photographs are mounted on cardboard or fabric.

    The Public Record Office has imposed a sequential numbering system on the photographs in the form of a single number written and circled in pencil on the back of each photograph. The photographs have also been grouped and placed into numbered envelopes.

    This series has been artificially created in that the photographs were grouped together by Public Record Office staff. It is probable that at some time the photographs were a part of, or related to, other records however such connections have not been established. The different ages and subject matter of the photographs indicate that they were originally created by a number of different agencies.
